UAM Ranked Among 50 Most Affordable Small Colleges For A Master’s Degree In Education

MONTICELLO, AR — The University of Arkansas at Monticello has been ranked among the “50 Most Affordable Small Colleges” for a master of education degree (M.Ed.) in a recent ranking by the website topeducationdegrees.com.

            UAM was 33rd in the rankings, which compares out-of-state tuition costs of colleges and universities with fewer than 5,000 students.

            “We’re always pleased to receive national recognition for our programs,” said Dr. Peggy Doss, interim vice chancellor for academic affairs and dean of the UAM School of Education. “The cost of achieving a graduate degree in any discipline is an expensive undertaking and I am glad that UAM has been able to keep those costs at a reasonable level.”

            The ranking from topeducationdegrees.com is for colleges and universities offering the M.Ed. UAM’s School of Education also offers the master of education in educational leadership degree, the master of arts in teaching, and the master of physical education and coaching.

            “With the demand for highly qualified teachers on the rise as well as the increase in salary afforded to teachers with an advanced degree, a master’s in education is more popular than ever,” said Doss. “With that in mind, it is imperative that we keep program costs at an affordable level.”
