PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Board of Regents this week approved a specialization in natural resource management at South Dakota State University. It will be part of the Master of Science degree and a doctoral degree already offered. Students will receive advanced training in ecology, conservation and management, making them more competitive for careers in state and federal agencies, nongovernment organizations and private industry. The addition helps the state’s public universities meet workforce and community development needs.
Northern State University, South Dakota School of Mines & Technology and the University of South Dakota also had offerings approved.
