eLearners.com Inc., creator of the leading website for connecting learners to education, today announced their second quarter results for eLearners IndexTM, which contains valuable marketing research data about online degree programs. The index reflects statistical data on the activities of visitors to the eLearners.com® website, including the site areas they view and the programs that generate the highest number of inquiries from prospective students.

The top 10 online degree subjects for Q2 2004 were:

1. Business Administration and MBA

2. Psychology

3. Nursing

4. Engineering

5. Liberal Arts / Humanities

6. K12 Education

7. Information Systems and Technology

8. Criminal Justice

9. Early Childhood Education

10. Health Administration

Four of the ten spots on the list changed since the first quarter, including Early Childhood Education that moved up two spots to number nine, replacing Business Specialties - Management (now at 11). Overall, Business Administration and specialties such as Marketing, Accounting, and Management comprise the highest area of interest among students pursuing an online education. Within the subject of Business, more students are interested in bachelor's degrees in business than a master's. Also worth noting is that prospective bachelor's in business students prefer studies in specific business specialties, while students pursuing a master's in business prefer a more broad business education.

Degrees in health related fields are also very popular; licensed health care workers are looking to obtain bachelor's and master's degrees to advance their careers into administrative positions. Prospective students are also looking into administrative and billing training for medical, dental and veterinary offices.

"We began publishing the Index earlier this year to make our valuable web site data available to post-secondary institutions that seek to strengthen their position in the online education market." said C.J. DeSantis, president of eLearners. "We have found that these statistics can serve as a valuable resource for institutions that are looking to expand or enhance their program offerings."

Accredited higher education institutions, and qualified entities engaged in market research, can purchase a full copy of the Index or request more information about the eLearners Index online at: http://www.elearnersindex.com.
