UW–Madison’s School of Education and several of its programs are once again ranked among the very best in the nation in the 2021 edition of U.S. News & World Report’s Best Graduate Schools rankings released Tuesday, March 17.
UW-Madison is home to the No. 1-ranked public school of education in the nation, a distinction it is sharing again this year with the University of California, Los Angeles.
UW–Madison’s School of Education is No. 4 overall, trailing only private institutions Harvard University, the University of Pennsylvania, and Stanford University. UW–Madison, UCLA, and private Vanderbilt University all tied for the No. 4 spot overall.
This marks the 21st time in the past 22 years that UW-Madison has maintained a top-10 ranking among all schools of education in the nation, and the sixth time in the past seven years that it is home to the No. 1 public school of education.
In addition, nine graduate specialty programs housed within the School of Education are rated among the Top 10 nationally — including No. 1-ranked programs in curriculum and instruction (Department of Curriculum and Instruction), and printmaking (Art Department).
