U.S. News & World Report ranks UMaine among best grad schools for education

U.S. News & World Report’s annual list of the top graduate schools in various fields once again ranks the University of Maine College of Education and Human Development among the best schools for education.

For 2020, UMaine ranked 127 out of more than 200 schools considered by U.S. News & World Report. The university is the only institution in Maine and one of a handful of colleges from New England to make the list for education.

The rankings are based on expert opinions and factors such as student-faculty ratio, research activity, and student selectivity.

The College of Education and Human Development has more than 20 graduate programs, from graduate certificates to master’s and doctoral degrees. Earlier this year, U.S. News also recognized the college for having one of the country’s best online graduate programs for education.
