Troy University ranked among best buys in online education in psychology and human services

TROY – Troy University’s eCampus has been named a best buy in online education for bachelors degrees in psychology and human services by GetEducated.com, a consumer group that rates and ranks online colleges for cost and credibility.

eCampus was ranked in the Top 10 Best Buys in Online College Degrees for Human Services and Psychology professionals nationwide following a survey of 41 regionally-accredited colleges that offered some 84 online bachelor degrees related to the human service area such as political science, psychology and social science, according to the survey.

While eCampus provides a flexible learning environment geared to meet the needs of adult learners, Dr. Deb Gearhart, eCampus director, attributed the value of the degree programs offered online to TROY’s faculty and staff.

“What makes our online programs so successful is not only the affordability of the courses but the dedication to the students by the staff and faculty teaching the program,” said Dr.Gearhart.

Other TROY distance learning business degree programs have made GetEducated’s top ranked best-buy lists in the past, including the Top Ranked Best Buy Online MBA and Top 10 Most Affordable Online Bachelor’s Degree.

“Troy University’s eCampus is a gem of affordability in these tough economic times,” said GetEducated founder Vicky Phillips. “As a public, non-profit institution, TROY should be lauded for its efforts to offer affordable and accessible higher education to Americans nationwide. Often, to receive low tuition at a public university, students must live in-state. TROY offers one low, flat rate for all online learners, regardless of their state of residency, making it a tremendous value for online students living in other states.”

The cost for obtaining an online political science, psychology or social science bachelors degree from TROY is about $17,000 less than the national average, according to Phillips’ survey.
