The five westernmost colleges and universities of the North Dakota University System form the BakkenU. They offer a one-stop shop for exploring energy-related programs or hundreds of other exciting offerings.

You can start with a single class or you can get started on a path toward a certificate program, a 2-year degree, or a 4-year degree.

While these institutions are likely within an hour’s drive of your well head or shop, many courses are offered online or at a distance. In fact, nearly 70% of all students at the five BakkenU institutions took at least one online or distance ed course last year.
