The Master of Education program offered through Liberty University Online received a “Best Buy” ranking this week by GetEducated.com, a consumer website that ranks online schools and degrees.
News of the ranking, complements an announcement earlier this month that students in Liberty’s Master of Arts in Teaching
program achieved a 99 percent pass rate on state licensure tests.
“Combined, these rankings speak to the academic rigor and value that Liberty offers,” said associate dean for the School of Education, Dr. Beth Ackerman. “When you consider price, quality, accreditation and flexibility, we really do have the best programs available.”
Ackerman said the flexibility of Liberty University Online’s Master of Education, which has no set login times or residency requirements, is a major consideration for students, as many education programs require resident classes or weekly online lectures.
Vice Provost Dr. Ron Hawkins underscored the findings and took the opportunity to praise the School of Education faculty and administration. “Great price, great program, led by and taught by a great team,” he said.
Liberty’s Graduate Education program is accredited through ACSI (Associate of Christian Schools International) and NCATE (National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education).
