Tech recognized for top program in healthcare education
Louisiana Tech University has been named one of 2021’s best schools for online programs and courses in healthcare education by EduMed.org.
To be eligible, a school must hold active regional accreditation and have at least one partially online program in the ranking subject. Just eight percent of U.S. postsecondary institutions earned a ranking position.
Louisiana Tech’s recognition comes at a time when students across the country are taking more of their courses either fully or partially online. According to data from the Education Department’s National Center for Education Statistics, enrollment in online courses increased by 93 percent between Fall 2019 and Fall 2020. Nearly two-thirds of college students took at least one online course in 2020.
EduMed.org researched and analyzed more than 7,700 accredited schools using data from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (iPeds) and from the schools themselves. Primary data points are number of online programs in subject area, online program tuition and fees, and access to career placement services.
