COE advances in U.S. News rankings

The College of Education at Georgia State University continues to move up in U.S. News & World Report’s list of the best schools of education in the nation, moving up five spots this year to No. 55 in the news magazine’s “Best Graduate Schools, 2015 edition.”

U.S. News collected data from 278 schools across the country and calculated the rankings based on how administrators rated each institution, student selectivity for doctoral students, research activity and GRE scores, among other criteria. The college has advanced its position every year since 2008.

“This latest increase in the College of Education’s ranking demonstrates the continuing recognition of the quality of the teaching and research conducted by members of the college faculty, students and staff,” said Paul Alberto, College of Education interim dean. “It also recognizes the benefits of the many community partnerships that share in our work.”
