Online Degree Programs in Counseling, Human Services Ranked Among Most Affordable

Old Dominion's online degrees in counseling (master's) and human services (bachelor's) have been featured on SR Education Group's new website, www.OnlineU.org, as being among the most affordable college online degrees.

A Kirkland, Wash.-based company, SR Education Group is focused on creating authoritative online education and career-related resources. OnlineU's mission is to refocus the higher education conversation around affordability and quality and make access to online college information more transparent.

In the national rankings, ODU's master's program in counseling was 13th and its bachelor's program in human services was eighth in their respective disciplines. To view the rankings, go to #13 in Counseling and #8 in Human Services.

"Our distance education programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels not only enhance the reputation of our university and department, but make it a reality for so many individuals to access their educational dreams. The Office of Distance Learning and our departmental program directors make it almost an effortless process to offer these programs every semester," said Danica Hays, chair of ODU's Department of Counseling and Human Services.

Kimberly Wetter, head of marketing at SR Education Group, congratulated ODU on its rankings.

"We recently completed extensive research into the cost of attending different online colleges to enable students to find the most affordable online degrees. With the average price of college skyrocketing forcing many students to rely on student loans to fund their education, we were impressed with Old Dominion University's ability to continue to offer online degrees in counseling and human services at a reasonable price," Wetter said.

"SR Education Group is focused on helping students find the best school to fit both their budget and educational needs and we are excited to feature your school as offering some of the most affordable degree programs available online."
