US News Badge for Best Online Bachelor's Programs 2016

New York, NY – January 12, 2016 – The CUNY School of Professional Studies (CUNY SPS) is proud to announce that it has been ranked in the top 5% of U.S. News & World Report’s list of the 2016 Best Online Bachelor’s Degree Programs, forging ahead from its top 15% position in 2015.  Of the institutions listed, CUNY SPS ranks 1st in New York State and 11th in the nation.

U.S. News & World Report assessed schools based on four criteria, including student engagement, faculty credentials and training, peer reputation, and student services and technology.

“For the second year in a row, I am thrilled to share this wonderful news for CUNY SPS,” said John Mogulescu, dean of the School and senior university dean for academic affairs. “Given that CUNY SPS did not have its first degree granted until 2008, the ranking is an affirmation of the academic quality of our online programs and a testimony to the hard work of our faculty and staff.”

Home to the first fully online degree programs at the City University of New York, CUNY SPS offers fully accredited online degree and certificate programs for students who want the flexibility and convenience of online education.
