12 in the nation for online bachelor's degree programs

Mississippi State University online programs in four disciplines received national recognition in the latest U.S. News & World Report online programs rankings

Post University's Online Bachelor's, MBA, Non-MBA Business (Master of Accounting) and Master of Education degree programs have been ranked among the 2018 U.S. News & World Report Best Online Programs.

For the seventh year, EKU Online degree programs have been ranked among the best by U.S. News & World Report.

The online program rankings were released Tuesday for current students and adults looking to further their education and improve career-related skills.

This makes the University of Florida the top-ranked public university for online undergraduate programs in Florida, according to the U.S. News list. "Our focus is on online courses that promote high levels of student interaction and developing programs that expand access to the University's excellent offerings". The university offers innovative, accredited and flexible options for programs in business, communication, health care and education through three modes of delivery: online, a hybrid of online instruction and face-to-face meetings, and face-to-face at off-campus centers in Hickory, Caldwell County and Burke County. "I am delighted to share this recognition with my colleagues in the College of Nursing and College of Education and applaud the faculty and staff in the College of Business for developing and delivering top-notch graduate online business programs". Students may also earn a Certificate in Gifted and Talented Education online, and new online certificate programs in Appreciative Inquiry/Philosophy for Children and Educational Assessment will be rolled out this spring and summer.


Distance Education at Appalachian State University is for students from all walks of life who share a priority to achieve a highly regarded college education but must balance their life with other responsibilities. The school launched its first online PhD program in 2015 and UB's first massive open online course (MOOC) on learning site Coursera in 2016.

"Our college is committed to the constant improvement of its graduate programs designed for distance learners, and that commitment has made this program without peer in a very short amount of time", Petersen said. This is the program's fourth consecutive year on the list. The Master of Science in Information Technology degree is offered by the college's School of Information.

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.

The admissions standards and process will be the same for the online cohort as it is for Marquette's other MBA programs, Simmons added. Students enrolled in the major will have the ability to take traditional face-to-face classes on the Macomb campus, online classes or a combination of the two to earn a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology.
