Curry School’s Master’s Degree Rated No. 3 in the Nation

By Dan Heuchert

The Curry School of Education’s elementary teaching master’s program ranks No. 3 in the nation, according to an internet ranking site.

A new ranking of master’s degrees in elementary education lists the University of Virginia’s Curry School of Education as offering one of the top three such degrees in the nation.

The ranking from College Choice, an online educational ranking site, takes into account “academic reputation rankings, program tuition rates, early career earnings of graduates, and student satisfaction,” according to the announcement.

In its profile of UVA’s program, the website says, “This program is ideal for candidates with an undergraduate degree in an area other than education and provides the necessary knowledge and experience to begin a career in teaching elementary students.”

UVA ranks behind only Stanford University and Vanderbilt University in the listing. Rounding out the top 10 are the University of California, Berkeley; the University of Michigan; Johns Hopkins University; the University of California, Los Angeles; the University of Pennsylvania; the College of William & Mary; and North Carolina State University.
