A major advantage of our Program is that you can earn credit toward your degree flexibly, using a variety of means. These include: earning UAF Credit for Prior Learning (for non-RD courses); designing Rural Development individualized courses (e.g.,internships, mentorships, on-the-job credit, workshops) and travel-study.
