For the sixth consecutive year, U.S. News & World Report has ranked UConn’s Neag School of Education among the top 20 public graduate schools of education in the nation. The 2022 rankings for best education schools were released today.
The Neag School stands at No. 16 among public graduate schools of education and at No. 27 for all graduate schools of education nationwide. In addition, one of the Neag School’s specialty programs stands among the top 20 in the United States: Special Education, tied at No. 13.
“Carrying out our mission-driven work at UConn’s Neag School relies on and undeniably benefits from the innovation and diligence of our faculty and staff, as well as the tremendous students here who aspire to shape the future of education,” says Interim Dean Jason Irizarry. “It’s always gratifying to see their hard work and brilliance reflected back and aligning with our own vision and values.”
The U.S. News graduate education program rankings are based on statistical and reputation data based on 10 measures, including research activity, student selectivity, and peer assessments. For the 2022 rankings, U.S. News surveyed graduate education programs at 438 schools granting doctoral degrees in the fall of 2020 and early 2021, with 277 of those schools responding.
Specialty program rankings, such as those for special education, are based solely on nominations by education school deans and education school deans of graduate studies from the list of schools surveyed.
