Welcome to the Department of Alaska Native Studies and Rural Development (DANSRD). We offer several dynamic degree programs including a Bachelor's of Alaska Native Studies, a Bachelors of Rural Development, and a Master's of Rural Development.

All of our degree programs are distance delivered so students never have to leave home to achieve their educational goals.

If you are interested in further developing your leadership and management skills and/or in enhancing the quality of life in your community, we invite you to enroll in a class or apply for one of our degree programs.
