The vocational-technical education program pulled a ninth place rating in the specialty programs category.
UT-Knoxville’s College of Education was 46th, up two places from last year. U.S. News reviewed 188 education colleges. Harvard is first in the education rankings.
The UT-Knoxville College of Law moved up one position from last year to 47th among the 175 law schools the magazine reviewed. Yale University leads the law ratings.
The publication-s rankings, available on newsstands next week, are based on reputation, student selectivity and faculty research.
