Online bachelor’s degree programs at the University of Alaska Fairbanks have again been ranked among the best by U.S. News & World Report. UAF’s online Bachelor of Business Administration programs also earned a top 50 spot in the new-this-year ranking for undergraduate business programs.

UAF earned spots on three lists for graduate-level online programs as well.

All included, U.S. News & World Report ranked UAF on the following lists for 2021:

  • Best Online Bachelor’s Programs
  • Best Online Undergraduate Business (specialty)
  • Best Online MBA Programs
  • Best Online Education Programs (Graduate)
  • Best Online Criminal Justice/Criminology Programs (Graduate)

UAF’s online Master of Arts in justice administration was ranked 21st in the country, the university’s highest ranking for an online program to date.

“We prioritize our students, and with that comes high-quality programs designed to help each student succeed,” said Owen Guthrie, UAF eCampus director.

UAF has the largest selection of online degrees and is the longest-running distance education program in the state of Alaska.

Scores for U.S. News & World Report’s 2021 rankings were based on reviews in four categories: engagement, student services and technology, faculty credentials and training, and expert opinion.
