Vanderbilt Tops Special Education Ranking


Text Size  A  A

A handful of universities retained the top slots this year in U.S. News & World Report’s annual ranking of the nation’s best training programs for special educators.

Vanderbilt University claimed the number one spot on the publication’s list of special education graduate programs, which was released this month. The University of Kansas, which tied with Vanderbilt for top billing last year, came in second.

Other leading programs can be found at the University of Oregon, the University of Texas​‒​Austin, the University of Virginia and the University of Florida, according to the ranking.

The list of special education programs comes alongside similar rankings for other disciplines including law, business and engineering, featured in U.S. News’ Best Graduate Schools 2014.

    Prof. Erik Carter of Vandy is great. If you haven’t read his boo on inclusion in the faith community, you should. It’s terrific.

    When I read an article about the rankings of colleges which enroll students with disabilities, I’ll be impressed!
