Graduate Programs in South Dakota State Colleges and Universities.
Gibb, Richard D.
In 1971, the South Dakota Regents of Education adopted a resolution that stated that all graduate programs at South Dakota State University, the University of South Dakota, South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, Northern State College, and Black Hills State College be rejustified to the Regents. If such programs could not be rejustified, they were to be dropped from the degree offerings at the institutions. In a study of graduate education in the State as a whole, it was found that: (1) the need for Ph.D. graduates from South Dakota colleges and universities is not present, and there is only limited need for its master's graduates; (2) improved quality of graduate education calls for fewer graduate programs and strengthening those remaining; and (3) graduate programs of quality are expensive and will require large amounts of state funds if they are to be continued and improved. Included in the report is a listing of those graduate programs that have been suspended and those that have been continued at each of the State colleges and universities. (HS)
