Honors for the Neag Schools of Education, Social Work, Business, and Law Graduate education at the University of Connecticut is ranked among the top in the country in a number of fields and disciplines, according to new U.S. News & World Report rankings.
The Neag School of Education, the School of Business, the School of Law, and the School of Social Work all have well regarded programs. The honour draws attention to UConn’s dedication to both overall student excellence and support initiatives as well as the unique initiatives of the specific institutions and colleges included in the rankings.

According to U.S. News & World Report’s 2024 top Education Schools, four graduate programs at UConn’s Neag School of Education have been named among the top in the US for the first time.
Furthermore, the Neag School is tied for 24th place among the top 25 public graduate schools of education in the country for the tenth year in a row. The Neag School is tied for 34th place among all graduate programs in education in the country, including both public and private institutions.

“I’m immensely proud of the hard work and dedication of our faculty, staff, and students that have led to these impressive rankings,” Dean Jason G. Irizarry says. “Four of our programs being named to speciality lists is a testament to the high standards we set across all our Neag School departments, and I’m thrilled we are once again recognized as one of the top public graduate schools of education in the nation.”

The following three departments at the Neag School are represented in the rankings of 2024 speciality education programs:
• 23 in programs for educational psychology; 13 (tie) in special education
• Educational Administration Programs: 25 (tie).
• Curriculum and Instruction Programs: 28 (tie).
The special education program at The Neag School has been ranked before, moving up four spots from 17th place the previous year; however, the other three programs are brand-new to the rankings this year.

In the most recent U.S. News & World Report rankings, UConn School of Law climbed 16 spots to number 55, while its part-time Evening Division program climbed 9 spots to rank No. 10 nationwide.
The magazine’s 2024–25 Best Law Schools ranking, which ranks universities overall, highlights UConn Law’s success in bar passage and employment results for its graduates.
Ten months after graduation, 94% of the Class of 2022 was working, with 13% of the graduates holding positions as state and federal judicial clerks.

The results for the class of 2023 are also very remarkable. In July of 2023, 84% of UConn Law grads who had never taken the Connecticut bar exam before passed it, which was 17 points higher than the state average. These successes are the result of the dedication and hard work of exceptional instructors, staff, and students, with the help of amazing alumni.

“Everyone at UConn Law is committed to excellence and works tirelessly to support the success of our students and law school,” Dean Eboni S. Nelson says. “Although no ranking can truly reflect the results of their efforts or capture the many strengths of our campus community, we are pleased with the recognition.”

Several law schools, including the UConn School of Law, stopped actively participating in the U.S. News & World Report rating system last year. UConn Law decided to return this year since U.S. News has since changed its strategy and made more information freely available to prospective students.
