Search online master’s degrees in our database so that you keep working while you advance your career. Until now, there was not a complete, unbiased source of information about online master’s degrees. This made shopping for the right degree very difficult and time-consuming. The Online Degree Database is built by educational professionals who collect data directly from program websites, including information that research has established is most important to students. This includes program curriculum details like available concentrations / specializations, total program tuition, location and US News & World Report ranking of the university, prerequisite and admissions requirements, and more. This information is organized into a searchable, online database that allows students to look for programs that meet their specific needs and download the program details that they need to make an informed decision. The information may be purchased at a nominal fee, saving prospective students time and ensuring they select from the universe of available programs, not just the ones that are marketing their programs heavily.
