Sacred Heart University’s Online Bachelor’s Programs Rank Highest in State

Online nursing graduate programs were ranked as well

Sacred Heart University’s online bachelor’s programs are the best in the state, according to a ratings report released this month by U.S.News and World Report.

Moreover, SHU’s programs were ranked with those at hundreds of colleges and universities across the country in the U.S.News and World Report survey, 2017 Best Online Programs Rankings, which the multi-platform news and information publisher released Jan. 10. Sacred Heart received the highest marks in Connecticut.

U.S.News and World Report assessed schools in four categories: student engagement, faculty credentials and training, student services and technology, and peer reputation.

According to the rankings report, completing a four-year degree online is a practical way for working adults with some college credit to obtain skills they need to boost their careers. It offers the 2017 listing of the best online bachelor’s programs to help prospective students select the schools that are right for them.

“We have found that many nursing students come to that decision as working adults. Because of that, we made the decision to offer many of our nursing programs online,” said Mary Alice Donius, dean of Sacred Heart’s College of Nursing. “I believe what sets Sacred Heart apart is that even our online programs provide students with individual attention from a dedicated full-time faculty who want them to succeed.”

Sacred Heart also was ranked in U.S.News and World Report’s 2017 Best Online Nursing (Graduate) Programs.
