College of Education and Human Development named among top online graduate programs

Shibles Hall
U.S. News & World Report has named the University of Maine College of Education and Human Development one of the best online graduate programs in the United States.

UMaine is ranked tied for 76th on the annual list, up from 123 in 2017. The graduate program earned a score of 75, an improvement from last year’s score of 69. The rankings are based on scores in five general categories: student engagement, student services and technology, admissions selectivity, faculty credentials and training, and peer reputation.

The College of Education and Human Development offers graduate programs at the certificate, master’s and doctoral level, with many programs either fully or partially online. The master’s program in special education, for example, offers degrees in early intervention, high-incidence or low-incidence disabilities, all of which are entirely online.

In fall 2018, UMaine will launch a new online Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program, designed for people who want to become teachers and who earned their undergraduate degree in a field other than education.
