Graduate Program in Education One of Best in Nation

KNOXVILLE — The University of Tennessee’s College of Education, Health and Human Sciences graduate school in education ranks 35th nationally, according to the 2007 U.S. News and World Report.

This ranking includes all 276 graduate education programs in the country. UT’s program is tied with Temple University and the University of Florida.

Additionally, the program is ranked 9th overall in research expenditures. The faculty generated more than $22.5 million in funding last year.

“Of most importance, within the various categories in which we are ranked, is the amount of external funding our faculty generate,” Rider said. “This funding enables our college to support ongoing travel and research of our faculty, while also assisting in the procurement of new technology and other educational enhancements.”
