Online Schools Report Publishes Ranking of Best Online Humanities Degrees for 2020

EUGENE, Ore: Online Schools Report has released their ranking of the Best Online Humanities Degrees. OSR, the new student resource site, based their ranking strictly on data, prioritizing the school's ability to deliver an online education comparable to an on-campus degree.

Humanities encompasses dozens of degrees, but OSR's ranking focuses on the general degree. Many programs on the list allow for specializations or concentrations, but they are all interdisciplinary. Based on data from the National Center for Education Statistics and the Department of Education's College Scorecard, these are the best humanities degrees for online students.

OSR used six data points to determine the best humanities degrees. Three data points focus on the quality of the school, and three focus on the quality of the individual program. OSR included these programs in the ranking because their students graduate with minimal debt and have a great support system while in school. These schools are dedicated to delivering a quality humanities degree online.
