The College of Education at the University of Florida reclaimed its place as the nation’s best online graduate education degree program, according to the most recent annual rankings released by U.S. News and World Report magazine.
UF tied with Clemson University for the No. 1 spot in the 2019 ratings of America’s Best Online Graduate Education Programs following three consecutive years in the top two – securing No. 1 in 2015 and 2016 and No. 2 in 2017. UF continues to remain the highest ranked education college within the state.
“It is through the combined efforts of our talented and dedicated faculty, instructional designers and staff that the college is once again recognized as offering the best online graduate education programs in the nation,” said College of Education Dean Glenn Good. “We are committed to providing our students exceptional educational experiences using the latest in emerging technologies, and we are honored to regain the top ranking.”
U.S. News says 299 institutions across the nation were surveyed to compile the rankings, with ratings determined based on five weighted factors – engagement (30 percent), services and technologies (20 percent), expert opinion (20 percent), student excellence (15 percent) and faculty credentials and training (15 percent).
The UF College of Education offers nine distance learning graduate degree programs designed to advance the practice of working teachers and school administrators across the nation and beyond. While our rankings remain steadfast, our potential to revolutionize education remains boundless.
