U.S. News & World Report ranks two University of Alabama at Birmingham online programs in the top 25 in the nation

Four of Mississippi State University's distance education programs are recognized in the 2018 U.S. News & World Report online programs rankings, with two programs ranking in the top 50 nationally in the analysis released Tuesday [Jan. 9].

The online programs offered by the Graduate School of Education were ranked No. 15 in the nation in the Best Online Graduate Education Programs rankings, earning a placement on the annual list for the sixth consecutive year. Among the first in the nation and the first in the State of CT to offer full degrees online, Post fuels the personal aspirations and career goals of its students with inventive and robust learning technologies that deliver in-demand undergraduate and graduate degree programs, small class sizes, individual attention, and customizable degree concentrations.

"The national recognition that we have received from the 2018 U.S. News & World Report national rankings is a testament to our outstanding graduate online business, nursing and education programs offered at Florida Atlantic University", said Daniel Gropper, Ph.D., dean of FAU's College of Business. It ranked ahead of programs at several other state institutions, including Old Dominion University at No. 42 and George Mason University at No. 57.

Most undergraduate programs assessed by U.S. News are degree completion programs, and so few, if any, new students are first-time, first-year students.

The ranking also rates universities on graduate engineering programs, of which Purdue University earned the No. 5 spot. The publication only ranks US-based business schools. The program allows the student to design his/her program to meet individual educational goals, and students are eligible for academic credit for college-level learning that was done in a non-collegiate setting, such as the military or on-the-job training. The school will begin enrolling students in the first cohort for the 28-month program this month, with coursework set to begin in the fall semester. Categories include bachelor's programs and graduate programs in business, information technology, criminal justice, education, engineering and nursing.

The College of Education offers master's and educational specialist degrees that prepare professionals for such fields as teaching, school administration, counseling, human resources and leadership in both higher education and athletics. Instead, programs are rated on graduate indebtedness, course delivery and academic and career support made available to students remotely. Online Bachelor's of Arts are offered in psychology and social science.
