Georgia State University’s College of Education & Human Development (CEHD) remained in the top 50 colleges of education across the country in U.S. News & World Report’s 2023 rankings of higher education graduate programs.
Two of the college’s specialty areas placed in the rankings this year – curriculum and instruction (No. 30), which is ranked for the first time, and elementary teacher education, which rose four spots this year (No. 16) – while the CEHD as a whole was ranked No. 47.
U.S. News calculated their college and university rankings based on several criteria, including assessments from college deans and professionals who hire graduates from graduate education programs, research activity, student selectivity and faculty resources. Individual program rankings are determined by nominations from education school deans and deans of graduate studies at education schools.
“Our national profile and the respect of our colleagues continue to place the College of Education & Human Development in the top 50 colleges of education in the country,” said CEHD Dean Paul Alberto. “Such recognition reinforces our commitment to excellence in teaching and conducting research that garners substantial external funding.”
The CEHD offers undergraduate, graduate and non-degree programs for professionals in education, human development and health-related fields and brought in $21.9 million in research funding in FY21.
