The U.S. News and World Report rankings for the Best Online Programs were just released today, January 26, 2021, and Fordham University’s Graduate School of Education (GSE) jumped to #19 from #25 in Curriculum and Instruction. “This is a remarkable achievement, only having launched the Master of Science in Teaching (MST) online programs two years ago. It is a testament to Fordham GSE’s academic strength in teacher education and the quality of faculty, staff, and students who are in the current online program community,” expressed Rachel Eunjoon Um, Ph.D., Director of Online Learning, Fordham Graduate School of Education.

“During this unprecedented year where so many universities had to pivot to online instruction, I am thrilled that GSE has been recognized as one of the top 20 online programs in curriculum and instruction. We remain steadfastly committed to improving upon these gains to ensure our students continue to become the changemakers that our world needs,” declared Akane Zusho, Ph.D., Interim Dean, Fordham Graduate School of Education.

Overall, Fordham GSE moved up 17 spots in the U.S. News & World Report Best Online Programs rankings to #72 from #89 and is expected to be ranked even higher when the number of graduating students can be reported in the 2022 survey. Since the program was recently established, no graduating students were included in the data submitted.
