SR Education Group Ranks Southeast’s Online Programs Among Nation’s Best


Southeast Missouri State University’s online undergraduate and graduate programs have been recognized among the nation’s best value online degrees by SR Education Group.

SR Education Group’s 2018 Top Online Colleges ranked Southeast’s online bachelor’s degrees eighth and the University’s online master’s programs 16th.

Southeast Online and the University faculty are committed to providing high quality courses and programs that are affordable to students throughout our region and beyond,” said Chelsea Caile, director of Southeast Online Programs.

SR Education Group developed the rankings based on value. SR Education Group analyzed accredited online schools across the nation, taking into consideration academic strength factors along with annual tuition rates in order to provide a list of colleges offering the best value to students. Inclusion on these lists shows high academic standards and a commitment to affordability, two key factors important to prospective students.

“To be nationally recognized is a testament to our groundbreaking services and curriculum, and to our commitment to success for all students,” Caile said.

A driving force behind the programs’ successes are their affordability and flexibility for working professionals and part-time students. Students pay one tuition rate, regardless of in-state or out-of-state status, can receive course credit or competency credit for previous education and professional experiences, and earn a degree on their own schedule, added Caile.

Online bachelor’s degree programs offered at Southeast include Bachelors of Science in nursing, healthcare administration, healthcare management, computer information systems, technology management, criminal justice, business administration and interdisciplinary studies; Bachelors of Arts in psychology and social science; and a Bachelor of General Studies in general studies.

Southeast’s online master’s degree programs include a Master of Business Administration in general management, health administration and sport management; a Master of Science in management, criminal justice, healthcare management and technology management; a Master of Arts in elementary education, elementary or secondary school administration, teacher leadership, secondary education, teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL),  and applied behavior analysis; a Master of Arts in Teaching with an option in exceptional education; and a Master of Public Administration.
