U.S. News & World Report has recognized the Quinnipiac School of Education as one of the best places in the country to prepare to become an educator.

The School of Education's online master's programs have been ranked No. 27 out of more than 320 schools nationwide. This year's ranking represents an increase of 42 spots from last year.

"E-learning is the pen and paper of our time; knowing how to transform the classroom from a traditional format to a technologically engaging experience is the way forward," said Anne Dichele, dean of the School of Education. "I believe the issues of equity and access that traditional learning has struggled to overcome can and will be met with distance education. E-learning is the future, here and now."

She attributes the success to the efforts of the school's online directors, coordinators, instructional designers and instructors who have developed a high-quality online learning model. Quinnipiac is the only school in Connecticut to be included among the top 150 online education programs.

"The Quinnipiac School of Education is proud to lead the way, to show the educational world how a high quality and successful online educational environment can and should be," she said.

The rankings are based on a formula comprised of: engagement, expert opinion, faculty credentials and training, services and technologies and student excellence.
