Online Programs Ranked by U.S. News and World Report
Worldwide eLearning's programs are ranked in three different areas.
U.S. News & World Report recently released its 2015 Best Online Programs rankings, where Texas Tech University’s Worldwide eLearning received a spot in three different areas, all for graduate programs – computer information technology, engineering and education.
In 2014, Texas Tech’s online engineering and education programs were ranked but both advanced to a higher ranking this year.
“One of our most important goals here at Texas Tech is to increase the student engagement academically, whether it may be here in Lubbock or other areas,” Texas Tech President M. Duane Nellis said. “With our online programs, we can help students near and far achieve their education goals, and I commend Worldwide eLearning faculty and staff for their strong efforts in helping students to do so.”.
Each year, U.S. News ranks higher education institutions and programs in various areas, including:
- Student engagement
- Faculty credentials and training
- Student services and technology
- Peer reputation
- Admissions selectivity
