Online Graduate Education Degrees Earn Top Ranking
Georgia Southern’s College of Education online graduate degree programs picked up another top ranking, this time from SR Education Group’s, “2015 Top Online Education Degrees.” COE ranked 12 among nonprofit colleges and universities offering online education undergraduate, graduate and doctoral programs. COE offers nine online master’s in education degrees, six education specialists’ degrees and three endorsements. In addition, COE offers hybrid educational doctorate (Ed.D.) and master’s programs with both online and campus-based classes.
SR Education Group analyzed such data as tuition, high satisfaction as reported by recently graduated students and “degrees that lead to career advancement.”
The group looked at 51 nonprofit institutions offering online education degrees, and ranked 15.
In releasing the report, SR Education Group said, “These 15 NCATE-accredited institutions are some of the most selective online education programs in the nation… Low acceptance rates, coupled with accreditation from the premier accrediting agency for teacher preparation, make them competitive options for students seeking an online graduate education degree.” NCATE, the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education, is the accrediting agency for teacher and education leader preparation programs.
“Once again, we’re very pleased that our online graduate programs have been recognized for their quality and value,” commented COE Dean Thomas Koballa. “Our faculty has taken online learning to a new level of excellence in academics, hands-on experience and student engagement,” he added.
