Online General Studies Program Ranks Tops in 2019

Tigerville, SC (June 14, 2019) Great jobs and career success depends on securing the right knowledge, skills, and credentials. For most, that means a college or university degree. Nowadays that also means choosing between an online or campus-based education.

The Best Schools.org, an online resource which empowers prospective students to make informed decisions about education, recently released their college rankings for 2019.  North Greenville University (NGU) ranks twelfth in their Bachelor’s in General Studies Degree Online ranking.

Education demands a significant investment of time and money. Best Schools hopes to find the best school and degree program for prospective students, and is dedicated to making education rewarding and fulfilling.

The Best Schools.org says earning a general studies degree online allows students to engage with many topics. Furthermore, while students often choose this educational path as a soul-searching adventure, the degree offers many benefits for graduates who wish to turn it into a career.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that business and financial occupations—both of which may employ candidates with broad knowledge — will grow at faster-than-average rates from 2016 to 2026; their median annual salaries represent higher-than-average wages as well.

Students pursuing a general studies degree online build a solid educational foundation and gain knowledge in different fields while creating their academic path. Some students may pursue a single concentration or complementary specializations, whereas others may choose to prepare for future studies with a mixture of undergraduate courses. Educational freedom allows students to develop professional expertise wholly designed around their interests.

The Best Schools.org selected degree programs based on the quality of program and range of courses provided as well as school awards, rankings, and reputation.

As a general studies major at NGU, a student will spend much of their time learning about communication; problem-solving; critical thinking; researching; multidisciplinary interaction; oral and written communication; analytical skills; critical thinking; and physical, social, and cultural understanding, as well as how to apply this knowledge in your own career. By their senior year, you will have completed a senior research project, service project, or portfolio development.

“Ultimately, the online general studies degree will provide a strong education based on a biblical worldview that will prepare you for a variety of careers,” said Associate Vice President of Online and Non-Traditional Programs Dr. Lena Maslennikova.

NGU offers online, on-campus, and virtual class sessions to provide adults with the most enhanced learning environments. It gives the student a choice to shape their educational experience, fitting their life and learning style. In this flexible program, a student can choose to complete your degree fully online or take advantage of a blended learning environment that allows the student to interact with their professor and peers face to face, online or in a virtual real-time session every week.
