UT-Austin College of Education Top 10 Nationally, Top 3 Among Publics
I’m writing to share the recently announced U.S. News & World Report graduate school rankings. The College of Education is ranked 10th overall and has maintained its third-place ranking among public universities.
The contributions of each and every one of you keep us competitive among our peers. I’m very proud that we have maintained our extraordinarily strong national showing in the face of both limited federal funding and an increasingly competitive market for top faculty and top graduate students. Faculty research continues to lead our field. Staff and faculty continue to support our students’ excellent education.
In addition to the college’s number three spot, the college is ranked second in research expenditures among publics. Specific programs and specialty areas also placed strong within the top 10, with two rising in rankings.
Administration/Supervision: Second among publics and third overall
Special Education: Third among publics and fourth overall
Educational Psychology: Fifth among publics and sixth overall, up from 10th last year
Curriculum and Instruction: Fourth among publics and seventh overall, up from 11th last year
Additionally, three programs placed within the top 20:
Elementary Teacher Education: Eighth among publics (tied with Ohio State University), 11th overall, up from 15th last year
Secondary Teacher Education: 13th among publics (tied with University of Minnesota-Twin Cities), 18th overall
Education Policy: 10th among publics (tied with University of Southern California-Rossier), 18th overall
Thank you all for your commitment to the College of Education’s long tradition of excellence.
