NMC offering an associates in arts with credits that are transferable to the University of Alaska Fairbanks

Northern Marianas College’s recent partnership with the University of Alaska Fairbanks, gives students the option to stay on island while earning an associates of arts degree in liberal arts with an emphasis in social work.

Graduates of this 61-credit program will be able to earn 37 general education credits and 12 social work credits from NMC, all of which are directly transferable to the University of Alaska Fairbanks’ social work program.
