Three Local Universities Rank High for Online Graduate Education Programs
CEDARVILLE -- There are 238 universities in the United States that offer online graduate degree programs in education. Three Miami Valley universities -- Cedarville University, University of Dayton, and Wright State University -- were ranked among the top 75 online programs in the country, according to U.S. News & World Report's Best Online Graduate Education programs, which was released this week.
Cedarville is the only evangelical Christian university in the Midwest that is ranked among the nation's best programs. Along with its No. 72 ranking, Cedarville University was just one of three schools in the top 75 with a perfect score in any statistical category. Cedarville's perfect score was in student services and technology.
Cedarville began offering the Master of Education program fully online in the summer of 2012. The University has had an M.Ed. program since 2000. In the current rankings, Wright State is No. 31 and the University of Dayton is No. 55.
The rankings are based on five core segments: student engagement; student services and technology; faculty credentials and training; admissions selectivity, and peer reputation. To gather the data, U.S. News surveyed all regionally accredited public, private, and for-profit institutions that grant a Master of Education degree. The data was then scored and the highest ranked programs received the highest scores.
"Being recognized by U.S. News and World Report is a significant accomplishment, one that we are very pleased," said Andy Runyan, senior associate academic vice president and dean of graduate studies at Cedarville University. "I am especially pleased to know that Cedarville received a perfect score in the student services and technology category (for the amount of financial, technical, and vocational support available to distance learners)."
Cedarville's M.Ed. program, which is NCATE-accredited, is unique to the region as it is distinctly Christian. The program offers an eight-week format in a cohort based model. Students can enroll as part-time or full-time students. The University has been educating students for 126 years.
