The U.S. News & World Report, the global authority in education rankings, today announced the 2023 Best Online Programs, and it's good news for Texas A&M.
The report assessed data submitted by 1,833 universities across the United States and ranked their online bachelor's and master's degree programs.
"Most of the undergraduate programs in the Best Online Programs rankings are degree completion programs, meaning the vast majority of their students already have some college credit. The methodology is developed with those students in mind, setting these rankings apart from those that are focused on recent high school graduates pursuing higher education for the first time." Eric Brooks, principal data analyst at U.S. News
