AffordableSchools.net Ranks NGU Third in Online Master's Programs

Tis the season for college rankings.

NGU has been named to the top five of AffordableSchools.net affordability ranking of online master's-level mathematics education degrees.

AffordableSchools.net, a college rankings site centering on unique and affordable academic programs, announced the release of its newest online masters programs rankings list, featuring the 25 Most Affordable Online Master's of Mathematics/Statistics Education Degrees.

The top three schools on AffordableSchools.net's rankings list are: (1) Regent University (Virginia Beach, Virginia); (2) Western Governors University (Salt Lake City, Utah); and (3) North Greenville University. NGU is the only school in South Carolina named to the list.

"The US Department of Education published an online overview of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education and included job growth expectation figures," said the article's lead researcher, Raj Dash. "Mathematics-dependent STEM jobs alone are expected to grow at 15% in the period 2010 to 2020, but fewer students are picking these majors in college than the country will need in the near future.”

College rankings for this list were compiled with data from the National Center for Education Statistics and a bureau of the Dept. of Education.

Graduate institutions that grant at least degrees and possibly certificates in mathematics/statistics education on a distance basis were queried. Colleges that are based in U.S. protectorate nations, have increasing out-of-state tuition, and have doctoral-level-only colleges are filtered for active online degree programs. This resulted in a list of the 25 most affordable masters programs in math/statistics education.

Similar topical rankings will be published at AffordableSchools.net on a regular basis.

This college ranking should help narrow the search for graduate programs for anyone interested in teaching math and statistical skills. It focuses on fully online or hybrid-delivery master's programs primarily in the format of teaching/education degrees in mathematics or statistics.
