Northern State University will offer a master's degree in banking and financial services beginning this fall.
The university in Aberdeen already offers bachelor's and associate degrees in banking and financial services, and the South Dakota Board of Regents on Wednesday approved expanding the program to grant master's degrees in the field.
The regents also authorized the university to offer the master's degree online so bankers from across the state and region can earn the credential without commuting or relocating to Aberdeen.
Regents President Kathryn Johnson says the new graduate degree will help students prepare for a career in banking and finance, and will help people currently working in the field advance their careers.
