Rankings: No. 1 in elementary and secondary education for 17th year
New national rankings are in and… the College of Education at Michigan State University is still ranked # 1 in the nation for elementary and secondary education. That makes 17 consecutive years!
The U.S. News & World Report’s 2012 edition of America’s Best Graduate Schools, which hits newsstands April 5, also recognizes the college’s capacity to produce high-level scholarship and top-notch graduates in several other education-related disciplines.
A total of eight study areas placed within the nation’s top-11 based on a survey of peer deans and administrators. They include:
Elementary education - #1
Secondary education – #1
Rehabilitation counseling – #2 this year after holding the top ranking for five years.
Education policy – #11
In addition, the College of Education was ranked 17th overall.
“This college continues to model high standards through research, teaching and programs. We appreciate the recognition of our peers which is reflected in these rankings,” said Dean Carole Ames. “Our faculty strive to make a difference in the quality of education through their research and as they prepare the next generation of educators and educational leaders.
“I am especially pleased – in my last year as dean – to recognize, once again, the achievements of our faculty, graduates and students reflected through these national rankings.”
