Magazine gives two UIS online grad programs high marks
A first-time survey of national online programs by U.S. News & World Report gives high marks to the University of Illinois Springfield’s online graduate degree programs in computer science and management information systems.
From The State-Journal Register, Springfield, IL:
The magazine said it undertook the project to begin filling an information gap about the strengths and weaknesses of online programs. U.S. News ranked 196 online bachelor's degree programs and 523 online master's degree programs in business, engineering, nursing, education and computer information technology. Programs considered for the rankings needed to have at least 80 percent of their course content available online.
Overall, the UIS computer science master’s program ranked eighth in the nation for “Student Service & Technology” and 21st for “Teaching Practices & Student Engagement” in the computer information technology category. The Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago was 20th in the category.
UIS’s management information systems program ranked 27th best for “Teaching Practices & Student Engagement” and 49th best for “Student Services & Technology” in the Business category.
