Political science educators at Fort Hays State University are celebrating. Their online program has been ranked No. 11 of in the country's top 15 by Social Science Careers, a guide to careers and educational programs in the social sciences.

Social Science Careers compiled the list based on each school's six-year-graduation rate, which is 43 percent at FHSU. Ties were then broken by tuition price, with the lower price given the higher rank.

Socialsciencecareers.org said that FHSU's program provides a balance between theory and practice, giving students the basics for success in their chosen fields.

"We make every effort to offer a predictable and timely sequence of courses so that students can progress without delays or disruptions," said Dr. Shala Mills, chair of the Department of Political Science.

She credited the success of the program to methods in which the online, full-time faculty and adjuncts approach their work -- with a focus on helping students succeed. This includes both political science, general education, language and elective course instructors, she said.
