FSU's online graduate programs shine in new US News rankings

U.S. News evaluated more than 1,000 online programs to develop rankings for online bachelor's degrees as well as various categories of online graduate degree programs.

Recognized for its Honors Program, NCAA Division II athletics, and its pioneering role in online education for more than twenty years, Post University is licensed by the Connecticut Office of Financial and Academic Affairs for Higher Education and accredited by the prestigious New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).

The Medical University of SC ranked third for the best online nursing program, while the University of SC tied for fifth with George Washington University, Johns Hopkins University, and the University of Texas-Tyler.

The top online non-MBA business master's degree program this year was Villanova University.

"We are thrilled with this latest ranking and recognition from U.S. News", says Evangeline Cummings, assistant provost and director of UF Online. "Our online students benefit from an affordable and flexible program infused with an innovative curriculum that equips them to move forward in any industry they choose".

Southeast offers more than 30 academic programs online for undergraduate, graduate and specialist degrees and specialized certificates.

Petersen, dean of the College of Education, attributes this substantial jump to the head of the online education pack to the hard work and dedication of faculty and staff in the college. The Master of Science in Information Technology degree is offered by the college's School of Information.

The School of Nursing's online bachelor's degree program (RN-BS), which admitted its first class in 2012-13, was ranked No. 60 in the Best Online Bachelor's Programs rankings.

"New York State has passed groundbreaking legislation requiring RNs to obtain their BSN within 10 years of licensure", said Lewis, PhD, also a professor in the School of Nursing.

Rankings are determined by factors including student engagement, faculty credentials and training, peer reputation, and student services and technology. MBA accreditation is also factored into the ranking: if a school has AACSB accreditation, it influences the student engagement indicator; some credit is also given for ACBSP or IACBE accreditation.

New classes are offered every eight weeks, allowing students to jump into the program in January, March, June, August and October. "UMSL recognizes that one size does not fit all in terms of education, so we are proud to meet the needs of working professionals who are eager to advance their careers".
