Online programs earn national distinction
March 22, 2019 LA GRANDE, Ore. – College Choice has ranked Eastern Oregon University’s online bachelor’s degree in Integrative Studies program among the top 25 best online liberal arts degrees in the country.
“EOU’s online Integrative Studies program seeks to instill certain valuable habits of mind including critical thinking, the ability to integrate disciplinary insights toward addressing complex problems, self-reflection, and an appreciation of different points of view in real-world contexts,” Capstone Instructor Kevin Jardaneh said.
EOU again landed 20th in the line-up that included private, research, and land-grant universities across the country. Partner institution Oregon State University took the top spot overall.
College Choice, an independent online publication, considered reputation, affordability, return on investment and accessibility to compile the annual list. Each university was scored based on average credit hour cost, financial aid awarded, academic reputation and PayScale’s average early career salary for its graduates.
Online tuition at EOU is one of the most affordable on the list, at $240 per credit hour. EOU also awarded more than $9 million in scholarships and fee remissions last year.
This recognition follows EOU’s recent distinction by U.S. News and World Report for its online undergraduate offerings that rank among the best in the nation.
