San Antonio – The University of the Incarnate Word (UIW) is proud to announce that Intelligent.com, a trusted resource for program rankings and higher education planning, has included the UIW School of Professional Studies to its list of the Best Online Psychology Programs in 2023. The research identifies top schools in the nation based on tuition costs, the number of credits required to graduate, and the online coursework delivery format. UIW was one of only three programs in the State of Texas ranked by the website.

“Our BS Psychology program offered through UIW’s School of Professional Studies offers a significant value in providing students with opportunities to develop important skills that are transferable to a wide range of other fields,” says Dr. Osman Ozturgut, dean and professor of the UIW School of Professional Studies. “The breadth and depth of learning in the degree program makes our students very competitive in the workforce. Given our extensive experience and strength in online teaching and learning, and our flexible and affordable structures, I can only imagine our national and international reputation growing. This recognition in another testament of how we are committed to the success of our students.”

Intelligent.com implemented a unique methodology that ranks each institution on a scale from 0 to 100 across six categories. The scoring system compares each school to tuition costs, admission, retention and graduation rates, faculty, reputation and the student resources provided for online students.

According to the website, studies show that obtaining a degree increases income substantially, with graduates earning 84% more than those with only high school diplomas or those without a completed GED. The percentage difference in earnings continues to grow with higher learning degrees such as master's, doctoral or professional degrees, with the unemployment rate decreasing to as much as 1.6% for those with a doctorate.
