These ranked programs are among more than 1,800 programs surveyed by U.S. News. This recognition underscores our dedication to the delivery of top-quality, accessible education tailored to meet diverse student needs.

“The College of Human Sciences & Education is dedicated to providing excellent, affordable online programming that gives students an opportunity to fit education into their busy lives. Many of our online courses are taught by the same full-time faculty that provide high-grade quality instruction on campus, and recognition of their hard work from U.S. News & World Report is a testament to the focus and effort they put into serving our students’ needs,” said LSU College of Human Sciences & Education Dean Roland Mitchell.

This year, U.S. News ranked 303 schools across the nation that offer online master’s degrees based on five categories: engagement, faculty credentials and training, peer assessments, services and technology, and student excellence. The veteran rankings are based on accessibility to internet-based coursework, affordability, number of students with military backgrounds, and factors related to academic quality, such as faculty credentials and retention rates.

The LSU College of Human Sciences & Education is home to 45.5 percent of all LSU main campus online students. Of note, the college’s undergraduate online programs grew 83 percent last year. 75 percent of all main campus online graduate students major in an LSU CHSE online program.
