USF College of Ed Grad School Picks Up Honor (Again)

USF College of Education

For the tenth straight year, USF's College of Education has been named one of the country's top graduate schools by U.S. News & World Report.

According to a USF News release, the College of Education was ranked 81st overall and 34th 52nd in funded research.

The rankings were based on the following quality measures: peer assessment scores, superintendent assessment scores, 2012 mean GRE scores of doctoral students, 2012 doctoral acceptance rates, 2012 doctoral student/faculty ratios, doctoral degrees granted per faculty in 2011-2012, 2012 funded research dollars, 2012 funded research per full-time tenured and tenure-track faculty member, and total graduate education enrollment in 2012.
More on the methodologies can be found here.

“We are pleased to be ranked among the best in the country,” said Harold Keller, dean of the USF College of Education. “Our faculty, staff, and students are what make the high quality of our graduate programs nationally recognized.”

U.S. News & World Report also recently ranked the College of Education's online graduate programamong the nation's best (honor roll status) for the second straight year.

3/19, 9:30 a.m. update: Story has been updated to reflect correct USF's funded research ranking. An earlier release had an incorrect ranking.
