This is a news release from College Choice

College Choice, a leading authority in college and university rankings and resources, has published its 2016 rankings for the Best Online Bachelor's in Social Work

Online social work degrees have come a long way in the less than a decade that the programs have become available through distance education. Now, these programs are just as rigorous and comprehensive as their on-campus counterparts. That's why College Choice has put together a ranking based on online undergraduate social work degrees.

"People often think that an online social work degree is easier than a traditional Bachelor's of Social work. Not true! Educators have been praising the developments in online learning for years—developments that have not only legitimized digital education but have made it both rigorous and dynamic," Christian Amondson, Managing Editor of College Choice, said at the ranking's release.

College Choice curated its 2016 ranking for Best Online Bachelor's in Social Work using factors that definitely impact a student's decision to choose an online program. These include the total cost of attendance, any fees that might occur, academic reputation, online learning options, program specifics, and more. This information was taken from the program websites, U.S. News and World Report, The National Center for Education Statistics. Further information was culled from the Council for Social Work Education, the sole independent accreditor for social work programs in the United States.
