LMU School of Education Breaks into the Top 60 Best Graduate Education Programs in 2019 U.S. News Rankings


Loyola Marymount University’s School of Education continues to climb in the U.S. News & World Report’s 2019 “Best Graduate Schools” rankings, moving up four spots in the nation’s list of best graduate education programs.

LMU SOE, which was eligible for consideration in the graduate program rankings only 10 years ago, is now tied at No. 58 in the nation. The school has moved up steadily since 2008 – when it placed 117th on the list – and today is the second-highest ranked Jesuit institution in the country (second only to Boston College), and is ranked third among private, independent schools in California.

The School of Education is in the top 15 percent of the 385 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.

“Within the past decade, LMU SOE has risen substantially in these rankings, breaking into the top 100 and now the top 60 best graduate education programs,” said Dean Shane P. Martin, Ph.D. “This speaks to the quality and impact of our programs and the dedication and hard work of our faculty, staff and students.”
