U.S News & World Report has just released their 2020 rankings and the UAB School of Education is among the top 100 graduate schools of education in the nation. The UAB School of Education is now ranked 85th among all schools of education in the country.

“We are thrilled to see our hard work recognized in this national arena. I remain energized by our vigilant and caring faculty and staff. Nothing is more important than protecting the integrity of professionals in the fields we serve,” says Dean Autumn Tooms Cyprès.

The UAB School of Education offers graduate programs in pre K-12 education, educational leadership, educational studies, English as a second language, instructional design and development, community health, kinesiology, and counseling.
