NGU Ranks in Top 10 Best Online Education Studies Degrees for 2017

Tigerville SC (October 13, 2017) Best Education Degrees, the leading guide to educational careers and colleges, has published its rankings of the 10 Best Online Education Studies Degrees for 2017. North Greenville University came in at seven on the top ten list.

The Education Studies degree is a broad-based approach to education and varies from school to school. The major is usually interdisciplinary and can be quite flexible regarding curriculum. It does not lead to teacher certification. Rather, the entire field of education is examined, including its intersections with history, public policy, psychology, business, and culture.

"The jobs that education studies graduates take vary from lobbyists and research analysts to daycare administrators and Head Start staff," Nick Sadowski, managing editor of Best Education Degrees, said. "The demand for expertise in the process of teaching and learning goes far beyond the confines of the school building, and that's where this particular degree fits in."

The ranking of the Best Online Education Studies Degrees provides an option for working professionals, adults with families, and other non-traditional students to get an excellent and affordable education, flexible to their schedule.

According to Best Education Degrees, they employ a robust ranking methodology based on a wide variety of reputed and reliable statistics. Three general criteria are used: a school's reputation score, calculated using selected categories of statistics from publicly available sources such as U.S. News & World Report, the National Center for Education Statistics, and college websites; an affordability rating using net price calculators and an average early-career salary (from payscale.com); and specific program ratings from the National Council for Teacher Quality 2016 ranking.
