For this ranking, Christian Universities Online began by collecting all members or member eligible schools of the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU) that offer graduate degree programs. Data was then collected for two categories, the number of graduate degree programs offered and average graduate student tuition and fees for an academic year. Both of these data points were collected from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) site, College Navigator.

Anna-Rebekah Orr, site editor, states that the goal of the ranking is to highlight schools that excel in their educational offerings in post-graduate education. Orr goes on to say, “The decision to continue one’s formal education after an undergraduate degree is a big one. While the future benefits may include a more lucrative income or increased career status, no one would downplay the commitment of time and energy that graduate school requires, or the importance of the decision making process when it comes to choosing a program. Christian Universities Online hopes that this ranking will prove a useful guide for prospective students.”

Christian Universities Online is an online resource for students and families researching Christian higher education.
