In 1998, Saint Leo was one of the first universities in the United States to begin offering online degree programs. Now 25 years later, the university continues to offer a robust online learning program, with more than 30 degrees, and is top-ranked for its efforts to offer students schedule flexibility, course variety, and accomplished, accessible faculty.
Saint Leo University earned honors in four categories for providing the best online bachelor’s and master’s programs in the United States, according to the 2023 U.S. News & World Report’s Best Online Programs edition, released in January.
The university received honors in the Best Online Bachelor’s Programs in Psychology (ranked 36th); Best Online Bachelor’s Programs (124th); Best Online Bachelor’s Programs for Veterans (ranked 75th); and Best Online Bachelor’s Programs in Business (127th) categories.
“Saint Leo is celebrating 25 years of offering online education so it’s particularly fitting that the university is being honored for providing outstanding online degrees,” said Dr. Edward Dadez, Saint Leo University president. “In 1998, the university took a risk and entered the online field. Through online classes, students can study anywhere and anytime that is convenient for them. It was an investment that paid off for the university and especially for its students.”
