U.S. News ranked ASU as 11th for online bachelor’s degree programs. Among graduate programs, the university’s degree in criminal justice ranked second in the nation, and the non-MBA graduate program in business ranked third. 

Arizona State University strives to go further when it comes to online degrees, and the added effort shows. In U.S. News & World Report’s recently released report, “America’s Best Online Programs,” ASU was ranked among the top 15 online programs for bachelor’s degrees in 2016. It’s an honor that serves to substantiate ASU’s dedication to innovation and leadership in the online education sphere.

ASU offers more than 60 bachelor’s programs fully online, from business to nursing and a diverse array of subjects in between. ASU’s online programs extend to the master’s level, which garnered additional top rankings from U.S. News for graduate criminal justice and business programs in 2016.

One key to Arizona State University’s success has been maintaining an ongoing commitment to the student experience when transitioning higher education pedagogies into the online modality. Each one of ASU’s online degree programs is designed to engage students though collaboration, discussion and interactive resources – exactly as the on campus curriculum would in a traditional classroom. This approach is one reason why U.S. News ranked ASU as the No. 1 most innovative university in the nation in 2015. 

Today, ASU’s online degrees are helping advance education, making it more accessible to every type of learner, helping students find success no matter where they are when they start their programs.
