Graduate Education Program Ranked
February 19, 2015
Overall, ASU ranked No. 54 on the list that was culled from the hundreds of four-year, public/nonprofit U.S. colleges and universities that offer online master’s degrees in education. According to TeachTomorrow.org, “The schools that earned top spots on our Best Online Master’s in Education Programs list showed a winning combination of affordability, quality and support services to help students earn the advanced credential they need.”
Criteria for the rankings included online tuition cost, academic and career counseling services and job placement services for graduates, as well as TeachTomorrow.org’s Peer-Based Value, that compares programs with similar quality scores and costs.
TeachTomorrow.org states, “While some rankings can be subjective, data analysts and higher education experts at TeachTomorrow.org spent months analyzing cost and quality metrics from the Integrated Post-Secondary Education Data System (IPEDS), the Carnegie Foundation and from the schools themselves to create the most accurate and highest quality product possible.”
Texas schools dominated the rankings with nine schools ranked in the top 60, including Lamar University, Stephen F. Austin State University, Texas A&M University, Dallas Baptist University, University of Texas at Arlington, Texas Tech University, University of Texas of the Permian Basin and University of North Texas.

This is just the latest national recognition for ASU’s online graduate education program, which in January was ranked No. 30 in the nation by U.S. News and World Report for its 2015 edition of “Best Online Programs.”
