USD offers computer science at tribal colleges

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) – The University of South Dakota will offer its master’s degree in computer science at three tribal colleges next year.

The state Board of Regents approved the delivery of the master’s degree online to Sinte Gleska University, Oglala Lakota College and Sisseton Wahpeton College.

USD recently received a grant from the National Science Foundation to develop a demonstration project aimed at increasing the number of American Indians employed in computing and information technology.

The grant will cover the instructional costs of the online program.
