UF has retained the top spot in U.S. News’ rankings for the Best Online Bachelor’s Programs. The college’s Bachelor of Arts in Education Sciences is among the No. 1 ranked programs.
The undergraduate program has become tremendously popular with 160 students currently enrolled. The education sciences program is designed to establish a foundation of knowledge, to allow graduates to pursue a variety of careers in education and education-related areas.
“The UF College of Education’s online undergraduate education is unique,” said Earl McKee, academic advisor. “From day one, students are supported by a dedicated academic advisor. Online advisors are able to connect students with a wealth of campus and virtual resources. On average, online undergraduate course sizes are smaller at about 28 students per class. This allows students to build rapport with their professors and engage in meaningful discussions with their peers. In addition, our online Gators are still Gators. There are several opportunities for our online students to engage with the Gator Nation through in-person and virtual events. All of these things, and more, create a vibrant undergraduate experience for our online students.”
College leadership shares this proud moment with the entire EduGator community, knowing that faculty, students, staff, alumni and friends everywhere have contributed to the college’s success. Dean Good reiterated that even though the college has been a leader in online education for the last eight years, momentum continues to grow.
