Women say online learning gives them more flexibility to tackle their work and family commitments. Women may be more highly represented in online education because of the kinds of jobs they pursue, experts say. In the world of online learning, female students predominate. At the undergraduate level, 70 percent of online students were women in spring 2015, according to a recent survey. Among graduate students, 72 percent of students were female. Some online bachelor’s programs are made up almost entirely of women, according to U.S. News data. In 2013-2014, these 10 schools had the highest percentages of female undergraduates among the 224 ranked programs that submitted data, excluding female-only programs.
