MOUNT VERNON, Ohio — Mount Vernon Nazarene University’s Graduate and Professional Studies online Bachelor’s in Public Administration was recently recognized among the 2018 Best and Most Affordable Online Colleges from SR Education Group, an education research publisher.

“We are honored to have our Bachelor of Arts in Public Administration program ranked fourth for Best Online Colleges for Value and 10th for Most Affordable Online Colleges. Our goal is to make getting a college education as affordable and convenient as possible, while maintaining a high level of academic quality,” said Kevin Hughes, Ph.D., Dean of the School of Graduate and Professional Studies at MVNU.

“MVNU has 25 years of experience offering adult degree programs and we put what we have learned into every program we offer and we are excited to have this new program recognized for its quality and value. The Public Administration program consists of a combination of core courses that will cover the broader administration spectrum from business administration to non-for-profit administration, as well as classes that will drill down on public administration topics and prepare students for leadership in the field of public administration,” said Hughes.
