New Academic Programming Approved for SDSU

 

SPEARFISH, S.D. – A new specialization in a master’s degree program and four new minors were approved this week for delivery at South Dakota State University.

 

SDSU officials sought approval from the South Dakota Board of Regents to offer a new specialization in developmental sciences for the university’s master of science degree in human services. Through the addition of four new courses, this specialization will provide students with strong interdisciplinary training in the cultural, social, and family contexts of human development across the lifespan.

 

Graduates with this specialization will be prepared to work in careers involving health and human services, education, business, and outreach and advocacy.

 

Four new minors, each consisting of 18 credit hours of study, were also approved at SDSU. The new minors, which may be earned alongside any degree program offered at the university, are in apparel and fashion studies, history of art and design, performing arts administration, and retail merchandising.
