U.S News Ranks Top Online Programs

U.S. News & World Report has been ranking the best colleges in the United States for years. The publication now ranks online programs and released its most current list.

The Best Online Program Rankings lists more than 1,000 programs in eight categories. The survey now includes the Best Online Graduate Criminal Justice Program, because the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts an 11% increase in law-enforcement careers by 2016, and the Best Online MBA Program, because of the increased popularity of that degree.

The University of California-Irvine beat out Arizona State, Boston University, and Pace University for the top spot in the criminal justice program, while the program offered by the Kelley School of Business, Indiana University, Bloomington, finished first in the MBA category.

The Penn State University-World Campus was ranked first among online baccalaureate programs and the University of Houston was named No. 1 in the graduate education program category. The University of Southern California had the top-ranked online graduate information technology program and Medical University of South Carolina was on top in the graduate nursing program ranking.
