Pride Bite: NSU’s Online Educational Programs Recognized by U.S. News & World Report

shark pride logoU.S. News & World Report has released its annual report on the best online educational programs available in the United States, and several Nova Southeastern University (NSU) programs were recognized.

The NSU online educational programs cited by U.S. News are:

  • Graduate Program, Criminal Justice, ranked 24th;
  • Master’s in Nursing, ranked 49th;
  • Graduate Program, Business (non-MBA,) ranked 78th; and
  • Graduate Program, Education, ranked 95th.

This is the first year that NSU’s graduate business (non-MBA) and graduate education programs were ranked, where as its criminal justice program slipped two spots from 22nd (2015) to 24th (2016) while the nursing program jumped 28 spots, from 77th in 2015 to 49th in 2016.

“NSU has been at the forefront of online education since students began logging onto the Internet, and we continue to strive to make all of our programs the best they can be,” said Ralph Rogers, Ph.D., NSU’s executive vice president for academic affairs and provost. “We are constantly evaluating to see how we can improve our current programs, how we can continue making them vibrant and robust options for students, and how we can expand what we offer to serve even more students across the state, nation and globe.”

For its rankings, U.S. News used various criteria and methodologies. They included, but were not limited to: student engagement; faculty credentials and training; student services and technology; admissions selectivity; and peer reputation.
