The state Board of Regents says South Dakota State University will begin offering an undergraduate degree in American Indian studies starting this fall.
The school in Brookings has offered a minor in American Indian studies since 1994.
The regents say the bachelor of arts degree will equip graduates to work with tribal governments and in other public-sector careers, including a wide range of jobs that involve research, communications and analytical skills.
SDSU is also adding an online-only option to its master's degree in journalism geared to professionals already working in news and media.
