Michigan State University College of Education News

Associate Professor Avner Segall and doctoral candidate Mark Helmsing teach a course for future teachers.

For a solid two decades now, Michigan State University has been ranked No. 1 in the nation for both elementary and secondary education!

According to the latest graduate school rankings from U.S. News & World Report, released today, the MSU College of Education has been considered the best place to study elementary and secondary education since the rankings first started in 1995. At that time, Bill Clinton was serving his first term as president, Google was three years from reality and gas averaged $1.15 a gallon.

The college also has a long history of high rankings in other educational specialities–this year, a total of eight programs are in their respective top 10. Only two other education schools in the country can match that.

Dean Donald E. Heller said the rankings are a reflection of internationally respected faculty members and highly accomplished doctoral students who are helping transform K-12 education and teacher training through their research and classroom collaboration.

“The research conducted by our faculty and doctoral students is recognized for the impact it is having on education not just here in Michigan, but beyond the state’s borders and around the world, ” Heller said. “We are proud of this (20-year) milestone, but even more proud of the strengths we have across many different areas in education.”

Here is the list of College of Education programs ranked:

The College of Education ranks No. 15 overall in U.S. News’s 2015 edition of America’s Best Graduate Schools. The overall college rankings reflect the quality of the curriculum, faculty, students and research within the college, as well as data from surveys of education deans and school superintendents nationwide. The individual program rankings are based on the survey of deans.

One stellar graduate student is Mark Helmsing, who left his job as a high school social studies teacher in 2009 to obtain his doctorate in the College of Education’s Curriculum, Instruction and Teacher Education program (which focuses on both elementary and secondary education).

Helmsing has two job offers from universities to be a tenure-track assistant professor after he finishes his dissertation this summer. He came to MSU to work with renowned professors including his advisor, Avner Segall, in the college’s Department of Teacher Education, and said the experience has been “transformative.”
