WSU’s online degree programs ranked highly by magazine

Among Washington’s public universities, Washington State University has made a significant effort to build a program of online degrees for students who can’t come to campus for classes.

The results of that work showed this week when WSU was one of just a few Washington universities that made it on a list of the best online degree programs, published by U.S. News & World Report.

WSU’s online bachelor’s program was ranked 20th in the country. It also ranked 21st for its online MBA program, and 29th for its online graduate engineering program.

WSU gets high marks in new ranking of top online degree programs

Thinking about going online to get your bachelor’s degree, or start a master’s program? U.S. News has come out with its third-annual ranking of the best online degree programs in the nation.

Perhaps not surprisingly, the rankings don’t look anything like U.S. News’ “best colleges” list, dominated by private Ivy League schools and flagship state universities. According to U.S. News, the best place to get a bachelor’s degree online is Central Michigan University, followed by SUNY College of Technology-Delhi and Pace University in New York.

Washington State University is the only Washington school to make the top 25 in online bachelor’s degrees, coming in at 21. But perhaps it doesn’t matter — when you’re online, you can go to college wherever you want.

WSU has been a state leader in online education. In 2012, it launched the Global Campus, an online portal to WSU courses and programs which it describes as its fifth campus (the other four are the physical campuses in Pullman, Tri-Cities, Vancouver and Spokane).
