Appalachian State online advertising degree cracks top 10 in nation for value, quality

I'm proud to announce our distance education online advertising degree is gaining steam. We just broke the top 10 in a new ranking profile from the Affordable Colleges Foundation.
ACF recently analyzed data from hundreds of colleges with online communications programs, analyzing which schools offer the best combination of online program quality, affordability and student support.
Appalachian State University earned a ranking of #9 for Top Online Communications Degrees for 2015. Check out the report at the link below:
The ranking profile included variables that measured cost and quality through student/faculty ratio, graduation rates, and job placement for graduates. The study also applied Peer-Based Value, a proprietary metric that compares quality metrics of colleges with similar costs, and the costs of colleges with similar quality metrics. Schools that were ranked must be not-for-profit institutions.
We have been working hard to transition what was a seated, satellite program into a vibrant, 100% asynchronous experience. It's rewarding to see that the Affordable Colleges Foundation has noted the value and ROI that's available through Appalachian State.
