US News World Report award badge for Online Graduate Education programs

2020 saw the professors, students, and staff of the College of Education and Human Sciences (COEHS) embrace a monolithic challenge by adapting to virtual learning in a short window of time. However, the College has something to show for its collective hard work: multiple programs have been nationally recognized for their affordability and academic rigor.

COEHS Online Graduate Education programs have been ranked #91 by U.S. News & World Report. These programs include Educational Leadership, Elementary & Secondary Education with a Focus in Teacher Leadership, and Physical Education. The importance of the online curriculum cannot be understated. Many COEHS students are working professionals, taking time out of their lives to improve themselves as educators, while also advancing the schools they are a part of.

The COEHS Early Childhood Education program is now ranked as the #62 most affordable program in the country by Discover Early Childhood EDU. Discover also recognized the College’s plethora of opportunities offered such as certificates, minors, Master’s, and Doctorate degrees in the study of Early Childhood Education.

The University of New Mexico holds a unique position in our state as being the only R1 Research Institution, while also providing an affordable, accessible, and high-caliber education. Congratulations to the faculty, staff, and students who were integral in these programs’ recognition.
