The College of Education’s (COE) online master’s programs in education are ranked 89th out of 228 universities in the country, according to U.S. News & World Report. This is a significant leap for the COE, which was ranked 141st in 2018 for online education programs.
The COE offers an extensive list of online or partially online programs addressing preK–12 education, adult education, counseling, and sustainability education.
“This recognition calls attention to the PSU College of Education’s leadership in the area of online education,” said Dean Marvin Lynn. “We currently have 22 online or hybrid programs and we are poised for continued growth in this area.”
Other COE programs have had impressive rankings in recent years for different categories. The Online Master’s in Early Childhood Education program in the Curriculum and Instruction Department was ranked 21st by U.S. News & World Report, and the Rehabilitation Counseling program in Counselor Education has ranked 18th in its field.
The COE is Oregon’s largest and most comprehensive school of education, with over 40 programs, including certificates, licensure, master’s, and doctorate degrees. More Oregon school administrators have earned licensure from the COE than from any other school, and 337 doctoral graduates hold positions of influence throughout the community and state.
