Through the Academic Partnerships program, the UTA College of Nursing and Health Innovation and College of Education are introducing an innovative, distributed learning program. Academic Partnerships is in step with the innovation that has become UTA’s hallmark. This initiative provides health care providers and school districts with accessible and affordable learning for nurses to complete their BSN and teachers to obtain a master’s degree at UTA. This breakthrough, scalable model makes it possible for tuition per student to be reduced to make education more affordable and accessible. The 9- to 18-month programs are based on manageable courses that can be completed while students continue to work.
