Best Online Bachelors Programs 2019January 15, 2019 – SEATTLE – U.S. News & World Report announced its annual rankings of the Best Online Bachelor’s Programs and City University of Seattle was ranked among the best in the nation for the seventh consecutive year, placing at 33. In addition, CityU was the only private university in Washington State ranked in the top 50 this year.

The list of Best Online Bachelor’s Programs is developed to help prospective students see which schools may be right for them. According to U.S. News & World Report’s ranking methodology, the majority of students in this ranking are working professionals in their 20s to 40s looking to advance in or change their careers. This directly aligns with CityU’s primary focus of serving working adults and transfer students.

“The flexibility of our online programs makes it possible for working adults to return to school for another degree without having to sacrifice their full-time jobs,” said Randy C. Frisch, president of City University of Seattle. “Our students finish their programs in large part because of our faculty who are practitioner-scholars. Our faculty teach. They aren’t mentors or coaches, they practice their discipline during the day and teach at night or on weekends. This ranking recognizes City University’s flexible scheduling and our outstanding faculty.”

City University of Seattle has a history of developing innovative education practices to meet the needs of its students, and is committed to helping them complete their programs. The university offers online bachelor’s degrees in subjects including management, cybersecurity, applied psychology, and project management.
