College of Education and Human Development again makes U.S. News & World Report list of top online grad programs

U.S. News & World Report has again recognized the University of Maine College of Education and Human Development as having one of the best online graduate programs for education in the country.

UMaine offers graduate education degrees at the certificate, master’s, education specialist and doctoral level, with many online options. The graduate program in Curriculum, Assessment and Instruction recently was redesigned so students can complete a master’s or educational specialist degree either entirely online or through a mix of online and on-campus classes. Other programs, such as the master’s in special education, are entirely online.

The U.S. News rankings are based on scores in five categories: Student engagement, student services and technology, admissions selectivity, faculty credentials and training, and peer reputation.

For 2019, the College of Education and Human Development earned a score of 73, making it one of the top schools in New England and the highest-scoring school from Maine to make this year’s list.
