UIS online programs get high rating

The University of Illinois Springfield’s online offerings have been ranked highly on U.S. News & World Report’s list of the best online education programs in the country.

In its 2013 rankings, U.S. News ranks UIS at number 83 among the 100 Best Online Bachelor’s Programs nationwide. It also ranks 16th among the Best Online Graduate Business programs.

UIS offers seven undergraduate degrees online — business administration, computer science, English, history, liberal studies, mathematics and philosophy.

“UIS online programs are exceptional because they are taught by talented faculty who work very hard to create productive communities in their online classes and because we provide strong support for online students,” said UIS Chancellor Susan Koch.

The rankings were featured by the State Journal-Register on January 16, 2013.
