For the third straight year, Peabody College was rated the No. 1 graduate school of education in the nation, according to U.S. News & World Report rankings released in March. 

Peabody is only the second education school in the last decade to have received the top honor spanning consecutive years. 

“Peabody College is currently celebrating its 225th anniversary, so being ranked No. 1 for a third time feels very gratifying,” said Camilla P. Benbow, Patricia and Rodes Hart Dean of Education and Human Development. 

“In the end, the work done by our faculty and by our graduates in their professions is the most important thing. It is rewarding to see their efforts repeatedly recognized.” 

Among specialty rankings, Peabody’s programs in Administration/Supervision and Special Education garnered No. 1 rankings. Also recognized were Peabody programs in Educational Psychology (No. 4), Elementary Education (No. 4), Education Policy (No. 5), Curriculum/Instruction (No. 8), and Higher Education Administration (No. 9).
