Online Graduate Programs Earn Top Rank
For the second year, COE ranked in the top 25 for “Best Online Graduate Education Programs” by U.S. News & World Report. The 2013 rankings looked at such factors as faculty credentials and training, student services and technology, student engagement and admissions selectivity. This was the first time programs were given an overall ranking. At number 21, COE was the only Georgia school to earn a spot in the top 25 online graduate education programs. Georgia State University was next, ranked at number 28.
“The ranking is just one indication of our commitment to COE’s online graduate programs and our work to continuously improve and expand the options available to best serve our students,” said COE Dean Tom Koballa.
In 2012, rankings were separate for each category. COE ranked in the top 15 for student services and technology, in the top 35 for faculty credentials and training, in the top 20 for teaching practices and student engagement, and in the top 20 nationally for admissions selectivity. For the 2013 survey, 208 regionally accredited institutions met the definition used by U.S. News & World Report and the U.S. Department of Education for online education.
