The School of Education is in the top 17 percent of the 379 graduate schools of education surveyed for this year’s rankings and within the top 5 percent of the 1,500 schools, colleges and departments of education nationwide.

The LMU School of Education is ranked 62nd in the country, and is the third highest ranked Jesuit institution nationally, behind only Boston College and Fordham.

Each year, U.S. News ranks professional school programs in business, education, engineering, law, medicine and nursing. The data for the rankings in all six disciplines come from statistical surveys of more than 1,970 programs and from reputation surveys sent to more than 16,500 academics and professionals, conducted in the fall of 2016 and early 2017.
