Last spring, affiliates from the PBS NewsHour visited Northern Arizona University’s campus to talk to President Rita Cheng, Cori Gordon, coordinator for the Personalized Learning program, and several students about its highly-acclaimed competency-based degree program. The story can be found online.

Personalized Learning has graduated more than 200 students since it was launched in 2013, with about 900 students actively enrolled in the program. In addition to offering bachelor’s degrees in liberal arts, computer information technology, small business administration and management, the program also offers a RN to BSN nursing program, with plans to add master’s degrees in computer information technology and nursing by fall 2018.
