Now you can earn a Yale degree from your own home - AINSLEY O'CONNELL, Fast Company

Earning a Yale degree will no longer require moving to New Haven, Connecticut, thanks to an online program for would-be physicians' assistants that the university plans to launch early next year. The graduate program, developed in partnership with software-as-a-service provider 2U, will grant Master of Medical Science degrees exactly equivalent to those of on-campus students. "This is a Yale degree," Lucas Swineford, who oversees the university’s digital strategy, told The Wall Street Journal. Online education, he said, is "coming of age." Students will complete the vast majority of their coursework through 2U’s cloud-based platform, with some in-person training at a local medical center.
