Master's program in secondary education gets top marks
The College of Education's master's degree programs in secondary education are ranked best in the nation in [GraduatePrograms.Com](http://www.graduateprograms.com/graduate-school- rankings/)'s Fall 2014 Graduate Program rankings. UGA's master's degree program in public administration was also top ranked.
GraduatePrograms.com assigns 15 ranking categories to each graduate program at each graduate school. Rankings cover a variety of student topics, such as academic competitiveness, career support, financial aid, and quality of network. Rankings are determined by calculating the average score for each program based on the 15 categories. These scores are then compared across all ranked schools for that program and are translated into a final ranking for that graduate program, i.e., business schools. A graduate program is not ranked until a minimum threshold of graduate student surveys is completed for that graduate program.
