Academic Programs Earn National Recognition

Christian Universities Online ranked OC’s accounting program fifth in the nation.

CUO cited OC’s partnerships with several companies and the university’s award-winning Accounting and Finance Club, which won first place in a state contest three times in four years.

In addition, Best Value Schools ranked seven OC programs among the best values in the country. OC’s major in chemistry was ranked second, accounting sixth, computer science sixth, electrical engineering sixth, mechanical engineering sixth, communication seventh, biology eighth, and pre-law 22nd.

Best Value Schools uses variables such as faculty-to-student ratio, price, school environment through student clubs and organizations, and income expectations for a degree.

“These rankings are a reflection of the dedication and scholarship that our faculty and staff demonstrate every day in the fields of science, business, liberal arts and engineering,” Vice President for Academic Affairs Scott LaMascus (84) said.
