The College of Education and Human Development at Texas A&M University is ranked No. 1 for online master’s education programs for veterans and its master’s degree program is No. 5 overall in the 2022 U.S. News & World Report rankings of the best online education programs.

In addition, the college’s educational administration program is ranked No. 7 nationally and instructional media is ranked No. 8.

The publication ranks more than 1,700 online bachelor’s and master’s degree programs for individuals looking to complete or further their education. It uses several ranking criteria, including student engagement, faculty credentials, and student services and technology. Only degree-granting programs that are offered online by accredited institutions were considered.

Other colleges at Texas A&M also fared well in the rankings.

The College of Engineering’s overall master’s degree program is ranked No. 9, and individual programs such as electrical (No. 4), industrial (No. 7) and mechanical (No. 7) also earned impressive rankings by the publication.
