best-online-program-badgeGoing back to school is a big decision. Universities provide more online degree programs than ever before to help you access the education you need, professionally or personally. But how do you choose the best program?

U.S. News and World Report ranks the University of Nebraska at Kearney (UNK) as among the best institutions for online graduate education programs in 2017. This designation, also awarded to UNK in previous years, assesses programs based on:

  • student engagement
  • student services and technology
  • admissions selectivity
  • faculty credentials and training
  • peer reputation

After more than 1,200 institutions surveyed by U.S. News and World Report, UNK received a rank of #35 for the quality of its online graduate programs in the education field.

So, how does this ranking help you?

As you consider a degree, think about the support you’ll need and the experience you want from your online program and university. Resources you can access from anywhere? An experiential learning environment with faculty who put students first? An accredited university that challenges and prepares you to rise up for your next career move? Ranking methodologies steer you in the direction to make your own assessment of what UNK offers and find the best educational fit.

And if you’re already a student or alumni of UNK—you can state proudly that your institution ranks among the best for graduate education programs. What you go on to do with a nationally ranked education can make a world of difference.
