U.S. News & World Report has ranked Western Kentucky University among the top 100 Best Online Bachelor’s Programs in the nation – and No. 2 in Kentucky.
The 2024 rankings were determined based on each program’s engagement, services and technology, faculty credentials and training, and expert opinion. According to the report, “U.S. News chose factors that weigh how these programs are being delivered and their effectiveness at awarding affordable degrees in a reasonable amount of time.”
Dr. Robert Fischer, Provost & Vice President for Academic Affairs, remarked that, “This ranking speaks directly to the quality of our courses and the expertise of our faculty. It reflects our commitment to providing an educational experience that is not only accessible but also enriching and comprehensive.”
WKU Online programs have remained in the top 100 out of a list of over 300 for over three years in a row. WKU online courses are built to fit around busy schedules, giving learners the flexibility to earn a degree without putting life on hold. Online courses are taught by experienced faculty who also teach face-to-face courses, so online learners receive the same high-quality education as students who take courses on campus.
“Maintaining a position in the top 100 for three consecutive years is a testament to our award-winning student services and the hard work and dedication of our staff. It underscores our continuous efforts to provide an educational environment that supports and nurtures our students’ success," said Dr. Marko Dumančić, Western Kentucky University Assistant Provost of Faculty Development and Student Success.
WKU’s online undergraduate business program was ranked at #50 in the nation. Other achievements include the veteran’s bachelor’s program with a ranking of #52, veterans-MBA at #68, MBA at #107, and Grad Education at #108.
