Tuesday 3, 2013

MARQUETTE, Mich.--Northern Michigan University ranked No. 1 among Michigan’s colleges and universities for the most affordable online degree programs, according to Affordable Colleges Online. AC Online focused specifically on distance learning options from public and private non-profit institutions with full accreditation.

“For-profit schools no longer dominate the distance-learning landscape,” said Dan Schuessler, founder and CEO of AC Online. “So many of today’s top universities have added full online degree programs to their catalogs, making it much easier for non-traditional students to receive a quality education. Offering students great online programs is only half the battle. The colleges on our list offer students quality, flexibility and affordability.”

NMU offers full online master’s degree programs in criminal justice and the following education specialties: learning disabilities, reading specialist (K-12), reading (K-8), instruction and education administration (traditional K-12 or American Indian education emphasis). The loss prevention management bachelor’s program also is completely web-based. The master of public administration (MPA) degree will be fully online in January.
