Montclair State University has continued its rise in the annual U.S. News & World Report Best Graduate Schools rankings, once again being recognized as one of the top education programs in the country and reaching No. 93 in the publication’s 2017 “Best Education Schools.”
“The U.S. News & World Report top 100 ranking reflects what our school partners and alumni already know about our deep commitment to quality in the field of education,” said Dr. Tamara Lucas, acting dean of the University’s College of Education and Human Services. “The progression in our rankings in recent years reflects both the increasingly important work of our nationally-recognized scholars and the high quality of our doctoral and master's programs.”
Montclair State has jumped 17 spots in the new rankings, moving up from the 110 position in 2016. This marks the fourth consecutive year the institution has moved up in the results; the University ranked 135 in 2015, and 149 in 2014.
In addition to the College ranking, the University’s graduate programs in secondary teacher education and elementary teacher education were each ranked 14th in the country. Montclair State University is the only New Jersey institution among the top 20 in the nation in these fields, and the other institutions on the list include some of the nation’s most distinguished research universities.
