College Consensus, a national research organization that combines the latest college rankings with thousands of student review scores, named Cedarville University No. 2 in the country among Christian universities for having the best online programs.
"Cedarville’s commitment to academic excellence, biblical integration and vibrant community are built into each online course and program,” said Janice Supplee, vice president for marketing and communication and dean of graduate studies.
Cedarville offers 24 fully online graduate programs, including six certificate programs. These online programs include the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP), Master of Arts in innovation, Master of Business Administration (MBA), Master of Science in Nursing (MSN), Master of Arts in biblical leadership (MABL), Master of Arts in Worship and Theology (MAWT) and others.
In addition to Cedarville’s online graduate degree programs, the university also offers online dual-enrollment classes for high school students seeking college credit. While not included in the College Conesus ranking, dual enrollment offers 38 online courses for students to choose from.
College Consensus rankings combine college rankings with thousands of student reviews. The ranking pulls from explicitly Christian colleges and universities offering at least three fully online degree programs at any level.
"We are thankful for this independent assessment of the quality of Cedarville’s online programs and look forward to continuing to expand offerings for the benefit of our students,” added Supplee.
Located in southwest Ohio, Cedarville University is an accredited, Christ-centered, Baptist institution with an enrollment of 5,082 undergraduate, graduate, and dual enrolled high school students in more than 175 areas of study. Founded in 1887, Cedarville is one of the largest private universities in Ohio, recognized nationally for its authentic Christian community, rigorous academic programs, high graduation and retention rates, accredited professional and health science offerings, and the #4 national ranking by the Wall Street Journal for student engagement.
