To rank, U.S. News & World Report considers several factors including admission selectivity, student engagement, level of accreditation, and academic and career support services.

“We are incredibly proud of the programs we offer and are delighted for this recognition,” said Dr. Michele Perkins, President of New England College. “I encourage anyone interested in graduate education to consider New England College.”

The Master of Education programs at New England College are designed to develop teacher leadership as part of the ongoing goals to improve quality of instruction and student success in schools.
