CSUN Ranks Among Top 10 Online Master’s Degree Programs
CSUN has been ranked with some of the most prestigious universities in the country for its online education.
The website OnlineU recently ranked CSUN’s online master’s program No. 6 in the nation, after Fordham University; University of California, Berkeley; Northwestern University; Columbia University and Johns Hopkins University.
OnlineU, a branch of the education research company Optimal — which seeks to improve students’ collegiate experience and post-college careers — created the rankings by comparing each school’s return on investment (ROI).
Out of the 25 universities included in this ranking, CSUN earned an ROI score of 84.1%. To determine each school’s ROI, OnlineU gathered information from the U.S. Department of Education’s College Scorecard and analyzed graduates’ salaries and debt payments 10 years after graduation. Each degree program’s 10-year ROI average was compared to all other qualifying programs in the same field.
Accredited schools having the highest average ROI and offering a minimum of three online master’s programs, in various subject areas, were considered for this list.
