U.S. News has recognized Pittsburg State University’s online graduate education program as one of the best in the U.S. The findings were published in the 2014 edition of U.S. News’ “Best Online Graduate Education Programs,” released on Jan. 7.
To compile its rankings, U.S. News compared online graduate education programs at universities across the country. Programs were judged on student engagement (35 percent), student services and technology (20 percent), faculty credentials and training (15 percent), admissions selectivity (15 percent), and peer reputation (15 percent).
U.S. News ranked PSU 75th among the 234 universities surveyed.
Pawan Kahol, dean of graduate and continuing studies, gave much of the credit for PSU’s ranking to faculty who have worked hard to build the online program.
“Our ranking in the top online graduate education programs in the nation is a tribute to our hardworking faculty members who are providing exemplary service to students through online education.” Kahol said. “I am very proud of both the faculty and the leadership in the College of Education.”
