  • US News & World Report Ranks Embry-Riddle Worldwide One of Nation's Best Online Educators

U.S. News & World Report's 2018 Best Online Programs listed UNF as one of the "Best Online Bachelor's Programs" and "Best Online Education Programs".

WIU offers 463 online classes (320 undergraduate; 143 graduate) and seven undergraduate and graduate degree programs, including the longstanding BGS, which offers students the option of obtaining their degree entirely via distance learning opportunities, or through a combination of on-campus and distance learning classes.

With Temple at No. 1 for online MBA programs, Villanova University claimed the top spot among online, non-MBA business programs. Consequently, indicators like standardized test scores and high school class rankings that are used by the publication to rank brick-and-mortar colleges are not used to rank online programs.

The report assessed 1,490 online degree programs and evaluated select features, including student engagement, faculty credentials and training, peer reputation, student services and technology, and admissions selectivity.

Online programs that received high marks include the non-MBA programs (No. 6) and MBA (No. 11) in the Harbert College of Business, the College of Education (No. 13) and the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering (No. 15).

"These latest rankings demonstrate the value of an Auburn degree in the workforce, and serve as a testament to our faculty experts who develop and deliver these programs".

The program represents an important joint effort between the two colleges, said Glenda Scales, associate dean for global engagement; chief technology officer; and director of engineering online programs at Virginia Tech.

"GSE's national ranking reflects our commitment to providing top quality and rigorous online education programs", said Suzanne Rosenblith, PhD, professor and dean of the Graduate School of Education. The publication only ranks US-based business schools. This is the program's fourth consecutive year on the list. Students pay one tuition rate, regardless of in-state or out-of-state status, can receive course credit or competency credit for previous education and professional experiences, and earn a degree on their own schedule, added McNeely. "Faculty in our online programs are committed to this form of program delivery, and have developed course materials and teaching methods that are second to none". The college also offers an online master of science in Health Promotion created to develop skills and competencies to effectively assess, design, implement and evaluate health promotion programs. Also offered online are the Master of Arts in exceptional child education; Master of Arts in Teaching in exceptional education; Master of Business Administration in general management, health administration and sport management; and the Master of Public Administration. "When Post became the state's first college to offer online learning, it opened the opportunity to earn a degree to many more students", said President Donald W. Mroz, Ph.D.
