RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- The College of Education and the College of Business at the University of Nevada, Reno had their online graduate programs recognized last week in U.S. News & World Report’s “2013 Best Online Education Programs.”
The College of Education’s online graduate programs, two of which are offered in partnership with the University’s Extended Studies, were ranked number 52 in the “Best Online Graduate Education Programs” category. These programs include the Master of Science in Equity and Diversity in Education, Master of Education in Literacy Studies, Master of Science in Information Technology in Education, and Master of Education in Educational Psychology. The College of Business’ Executive MBA, also offered in partnership with Extended Studies, was ranked number 55 in the “Best Online Graduate Business Programs” category.
In each of these categories, about 1,000 regionally accredited institutions were sent statistical questionnaires, and certain other conditions and definitions had to be met to be included in the final ranking. In both categories, criteria used to determine the final ranking included student engagement, student services and technology, faculty credentials and training, and admissions selectivity. The business category also considered peer reputation. Both the University’s Executive MBA and education master’s programs received particularly high marks for their student services and technology, ranking 33 and 32 in this category, respectively.
The College of Education’s master’s programs are accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation Teacher Education, considered the top accreditation for educator preparation. The degrees help fill a need in areas of education in high demand in today’s challenging classroom environment.
