In the 2022 online program rankings released Tuesday, Regent also received the top rating in Virginia for Best Online Bachelor's Program for Veterans and Best Online Bachelor's Program in Psychology.
Online learning has been vital for students looking to fulfill their academic goals while also balancing work and life demands.
"Regent is ahead of the curve; we've excelled in the online space for more than a decade and are grateful to be recognized as a persistent leader in online education," said Regent's Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. William L. Hathaway.
Hathaway attributes Regent's top-ranked online program accolades to "innovative course designers, faculty members, and administrators who simply make it their chief concern to help our students to succeed in earning respected degrees."
U.S. News & World Report evaluated more than 1,720 online bachelor's and master's programs in four key categories: faculty credentials and training, student engagement, student services and technology, and surveys of high-ranking academic officials.
Student excellence is also considered at the graduate level to measure the proven aptitudes, ambitions, and accomplishments of students who enter an online program.
"We regularly ask ourselves, 'How can we develop better tools and systems to prepare our graduates to succeed and also to lead in their fields?'" said Dr. Jason D. Baker, associate vice president for Educational Innovation. "It's the intersection of knowledge and faith; technology, rigor, and mentorship that we continually reach for. That's the difference a Regent student will experience."
