How Distance Degrees Work

You can earn your master’s degree from UND while you continue to work. Although time away from work and home will be expected, many professionals have successfully completed the Master’s in Educational Leadership while maintaining their careers and families.

Courses are offered through a combination of face-to-face meetings held in Bismarck, North Dakota, and online coursework.

You will be required to meet face-to-face in Bismarck, North Dakota. The number of times you will meet in Bismarck will vary per course. Typically, you will meet 1 to 5 times in Bismarck for a few days each time.
