CEHD online master’s programs ranked 36th in nation

Online master’s degree programs in Georgia State University’s College of Education and Human Development rank 36th in the country in the U.S. News & World Report 2016 Best Online Education Programs rankings released on Jan. 12.

The college’s ranking moved up from No. 54 in 2015.

U.S. News & World Report calculated the best online master’s degree programs based on each school’s admissions selectivity, faculty credentials, student engagement and other factors.

“Our programs are nationally accredited and exemplify best practices for student engagement. The low teacher-student ratios in our programs add to our ability to individualize support and ensure students success in completing our degrees,” said Joyce Many, associate dean of undergraduate studies and teacher preparation. “We also maintain the same high quality curriculum as found in our on-campus programs. These elements help to set us apart from other online programs nationally.

“We believe our faculty members’ abilities to design on-line learning environments that are interactive and collaborative and which ensure the learners can make a direct connection between theory and classroom practice make our programs particularly appealing.”

The College of Education and Human Development offers students online master’s degrees in mathematics education; reading, language and literacy education; science education; teaching English for Speakers of Other Languages; educational research; and instructional design and technology.
