Ranch Management E-Degree


How does an E-Degree work?

As a Ranch Management E-Degree student, you'll take online courses through LATI's eLearning system. Most of your time learning will be done at home, so you’ll only spend limited time on campus. But when you do, you’ll be learning in our new Ag Center!

Why an E-Degree?

LATI E-Degrees are “hybrid” - an innovative blend of distance and on-campus learning. What’s great about that is you can keep your day job (work, raise kids) and still get a degree. With hybrid education, you get maximum flexibility to study when and where you want, but you’ll still get the chance to learn on-campus with LATI instructors on selected projects.

How long will it take?

The Ranch Management E-Degree is a 20-month program.
