UK College of Education Rises to Highest Ranking Ever!

As we face this time of uncertainty, I wanted to take a moment to reach out and share a bit of news we can celebrate. Today, U.S. News and World Report released rankings showing that the University of Kentucky College of Education climbed 14 spots this year to break the top 30 among public institutions and are ranked 43rd overall among all education graduate programs in the nation.


Without the 2020 NCAA tournament to mark Kentucky’s wins, we are doubling our celebration of this latest ranking. To help us spread the news, please visit our social media pages (@UKCollegeofED) to like and share our posts about the ranking.

This is our highest-ranking ever and shows that our peers are increasingly noticing the scholarly endeavors of the college. As the top-ranked college of education in Kentucky, we are able to offer students top-tier programs, which employers notice as well. This is a credit to university leadership and the hard work of our team— faculty, staff, students and alumni.

We continue to innovate and adapt to students’ needs and changes in the education landscape with programs that offer a breadth of opportunities for research and professional growth. Earlier this year, U.S. News ranked two of the college’s online graduate programs among the top twenty in the nation. A third program is currently ranked in the top 10.

Amid our celebration, we are dealing with many uncertainties. Our leadership team has been working around-the-clock on a number of contingency plans to ensure our students’ timely path to graduation as our community responds to the coronavirus (COVID-19). While these are difficult and unprecedented times, we feel well-situated, as educators, to pivot as needed and make the best of it.

The UK College of Education offers more than 70 graduate degree and certificate programs in a wide range of career fields. To see more about graduate programs at the UK College of Education, visit
