Website names Liberty No. 1 among online Christian schools

August 2, 2013 : Liberty University News Service

Liberty University Online was recently ranked No. 1 in a list of the Top 20 Online Christian Schools by TheBestSchools.org.

Results were based on the schools’ Christian character, academic prestige, and extent and quality of online degree programs. Research was gathered from multiple websites, including U.S. News & World Report, Forbes, and OnlineChristianColleges.com.

Pioneering distance education since 1985, Liberty University is now the nation’s largest private, nonprofit online educator. As part of the world’s largest Christian university, Liberty offers a unique approach to online education.

More than 90,000 students around the world have chosen Liberty Online for the flexibility to complete a degree on their own schedule. Accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, students can choose from more than 160 distance learning degrees from the certificate to the doctoral level.

Online courses range from eight to 17 weeks, with multiple enrollment dates. Students can supplement their online work with intensives — one-week classes for non-resident students to experience life on campus. Also offered are “Experiential Learning Credits,” where work experience is counted as credit hours, to hasten graduation for the time-pressed professional. Online students can also benefit from the Online Communities program designed to help them stay spiritually connected and nourished during their studies.
