Best graduate schools picture

The University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa College of Education (COE) has been ranked among the best graduate schools in the nation in U.S. News and World Report’s 2022 Best Graduate Schools edition.

Ranked 80th out of 277 schools surveyed, the COE has been listed in the top 100 education programs for the past 16 years. The college also remains at the top for funded research, securing $19 million in contracts and grants in 2020. Nationally accredited since 2000, the COE continues to be recognized for its award-winning programs and people.

In 2021, despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, faculty, staff, students, and alumni won national awards for art education, academic advising, and world language teaching; secured funding for computer science and math education as well as the history of education in Hawaiʻi; and were selected for teacher fellowships and promoted to rector of a university.

“Our college has remained resilient and resolute in our shared mission to provide top quality degree and certificate programs, preparing future teachers, athletic trainers, educational leaders, exercise science professionals, researchers, and counselors,” Dean Nathan M. Murata said. “Another top 100 ranking is due to the hard work and perseverance of our combined efforts.”
