Linfield College was ranked in the top 100 of national online bachelor’s degree programs, according to the 2019 U.S. News & World Report list released Tuesday. Linfield has the highest-ranked online bachelor’s degree program among private liberal arts colleges in Oregon.
Linfield is tied for 76th place with universities such as University of Denver and Missouri State University. The magazine assessed programs based on engagement, services and technologies, faculty credentials and training, and expert opinion.
“At Linfield, our online students benefit from the advantages provided by a private liberal arts college: small courses, personalized advising and meaningful relationships with their professors,” said Laura Brener, director for online and continuing education.
Linfield jumped more than 60 spots nationally; in 2018, Linfield’s program was tied for 143rd place.
In September’s U.S. News & World Report ranking of the nation’s best liberal arts colleges, Linfield had the No. 1 spot among Pacific Northwest liberal arts colleges for “Best Ethnic Diversity” for the third year in a row. The magazine also gave Linfield the highest ranking among Oregon liberal arts colleges for “Best Value” and deemed the college No. 7 among liberal arts colleges nationally for “Best Colleges for Veterans.”
