Paul Nelson, KSL Newsradio Utah State University has a longer reach than many people would expect. The university is offering one of its programs to people who don't even live on this continent.

Apparently there are some Aggies overseas. "There's a great interest in China in receiving degrees from United States institutions," explained USU Vice Provost Steve Hanks.

Hanks says not all families in China can afford to send their kids to the U.S., so the university is offering its classes from three different schools inside China, from Hong Kong to Beijing. "In those three locations we have about 600 students now," he said.

So far the school offers a bachelors degree program emphasizing international economics and information technology.
