In its just published 2020 list of the top graduate school of education in the country, U.S. News & World Reports ranked UC Santa Barbara’s Gevirtz School number 53. The graduate school ranks number 38 among public universities.
The Gevirtz School also received a sizable increase in acknowledgment from peer assessment (other education school deans), with its score rising to 3.7 from 3.3 a year ago (on a scale of 5).
The U.S. News rankings are based on a weighted average of various measures, some specific to the particular program. The rankings generally include an assessment by peers, with measures of faculty quality and resources, student selectivity, research activity, and several other factors. Highlights of the graduate school rankings are included in the current issue of U.S. News & World Report, and in the 2020 edition of “America’s Best Graduate Schools,” as well as on the magazine’s web site.
