COLUMBIA, S.C., January 24, 2023 – Each year, U.S. News and World Report Best Online Programs rankings are released for future college students to use as they determine what is next for them on their academic journey. To determine the 2023 rankings, the report evaluated over 1,800 different institutions of higher education to assess each university’s overall quality of education. For the 2023 academic year, Columbia College was ranked 52 in Best Online Master’s in Criminal Justice. The institution was also included in the Best Online Bachelor’s Programs, Best Online Bachelor’s Programs for Veterans, and Best Online Master’s in Education rankings.
Columbia College is especially proud to be newly ranked in Best Online Bachelor's Programs for Veterans, which speaks to the level of commitment and dedication put forth by faculty, staff, and administration in order to achieve these and other milestones. After years of transformational transition and change, Columbia College is actively building an engaged community of academic and programmatic success.
Columbia College President Dr. Tom Bogart said, “Each year, it is uplifting to witness the concrete evidence of a job well done through rankings like these, but the true inspiration I experience is working day in and day out alongside the faculty and staff that make this success happen. Their commitment to the growth and development of our students and our institution is what drives this success. The best is yet to come.”
Columbia College is very proud of each of these rankings and will continue to pursue excellence for our students, faculty, and surrounding community.
