Thanks to online learning it is possible to earn a college degree in disciplines like counseling, social work or nursing with little or no time spent on an actual college campus. This may be one way to assist with the shortage of health care and mental health workers in Montana’s rural communities. According to Kristi Golik, director of marketing and public relations at the University of Great Falls, during fall semester 2010, 36 percent of the UGF’s distance-learning students where from rural Montana. In fact, in the last five years, 43.5 percent of the degrees awarded in UGF’s online degree programs went to people calling rural Montana home.
