These 15 NCATE-accredited institutions are some of the most selective online education programs in the nation, like the University of Southern California and George Washington University. Low acceptance rates, coupled with accreditation from the premier accrediting agency for teacher preparation, make them competitive options for students seeking an online graduate education degree.
These schools boast accolades beyond selectivity, such as the University of South Florida, named a top tier research university by the Carnegie Foundation. Additionally, many institutions offer a wide variety of online education degree specializations. Georgia Southern University offers 10 master’s degrees and 9 certificates, including a Secondary Education M.Ed.
