Michigan State University's education programs have been ranked among the best in the world.

Times Higher Education today ranked MSU #10 in its first-ever ranking of global institutions that offer education as a subject.

“The MSU College of Education is a world leader in research to improve the education and well-being of teachers and learners across the lifespan,” said Robert Floden, dean of the college. “We are proud of our high rankings, which show how highly our work is regarded.”

Times Higher Education’s rankings of university discipline areas were determined based on similar metrics as the London-based publication’s World University Rankings, including global surveys, citation counts and research grants. In addition to the education ranking, business and economics came at #34 and social sciences was #54.

The College of Education has a longstanding tradition of being honored for its programs. U.S. News & World Report has ranked the elementary and secondary graduate programs #1 in the nation for 23 consecutive years; the graduate program for rehabilitation counseling was tied for #1 ranking in the most recent edition in 2015. In 2017, the college was #9 in the Academic Ranking of World Universities.
