In newly released rankings by U.S. News & World Report, online programs in The School of Education at St. John's University were recognized among the Best 100 Online Programs (2021 edition). The online graduate education program was ranked #27 (up from #31 in 2020). 

"At St. John's University, our committed faculty strive to meet students wherever they are found," remarked Simon G. Møller, Ph.D., Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs. "Recognition from U.S. News of our online programs affirms our continued efforts to ensure student success by pivoting to digital platforms which enable a far greater range of students the chance to complete their degrees at whatever stage of life they find themselves."

St. John's University's online degree programs are among more than 1,200 such programs surveyed. Only regionally accredited institutions whose programs are offered mostly or entirely online were evaluated. Graduate programs in professional areas with the largest enrollments are evaluated annually by U.S. News, based on criteria such as employment outcomes of graduates. For the 2021 edition, the publication assessed more than 1,600 online degree programs—an all-time high. The rankings measure overall academic quality and are across varying disciplines. 

David L. Bell, Ed.D., Dean of The School of Education, stated, "With talented faculty scholars and researchers committed to providing students with an engaging, convenient, and supportive learning experience, the reach of online programs is limitless."

Three Master of Science in Education programs are available online through distance learning. The Department of Education Specialties offers a 33-credit degree program in Teaching Children with Disabilities in Childhood Education (Special Education) and a 33-credit degree program in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages PK–12 (TESOL).

The Department of Administrative and Instructional Leadership offers a 34-credit program in School Building Leadership. Each program can lead to New York State certification, and most states offer some form of reciprocity with New York through the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements

Dean Bell noted, "We have a new generation of students who seek innovation. They look for effective use of technology. That is the future of teaching."

The Communication Department online master's program was highlighted among the top 35 educational institutions advancing the careers of PR and communication professionals in the U.S. this year. The program was ranked by PR News among other notable schools like Columbia, Northwestern and Purdue. 

Communication professor Corey Davis led the department in updating the master's degree to a fully online program this year. It now enables students to advance their knowledge remotely, earning a master's in eight-week courses. 

"It's one of the most flexible programs with the ability for students to start anytime, and enables undergraduates dual enrollment," said Davis. 

The online program has been in the works for the past five years, now offering a range of specializations including health, journalism, social media, organizational, corporate and strategic communication. The program is unique through its ability to stack certificates.

"Stackable certificates mean that students can focus on the skills they want to highlight for their employers. If the students are interested they can continue earning certificates, and then take the capstone and earn the full master's degree that way," said Communication Department Chair Kathy Brady.

The master of science degree in communication is a hands-on program that uses work-life scenarios and case studies to make an immediate impact in someone's career. It's for those who want to advance their professional communication skills, and is applicable to many different areas. Some fields include new media management, social advocacy, healthcare, public relations, advertising, grass roots organizing, political campaigning or training and development. Graduates with a communication master's degree make an average of $17,000 dollars more per year, according to a 2019 report by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

For those ready to step up their game at work or expand their career path, this program may the right degree. For more information visit https://www.uww.edu/online/masters/communications.
