ABERDEEN, S.D. – Starting this fall, Huron students can earn an associate degree in business administration from Northern State University without leaving their hometown.
Northern will offer an Associate of Science in Business Administration at Huron Community Campus beginning fall semester. The South Dakota Board of Regents approved the program at its Wednesday meeting. Additionally, beginning fall 2020 the NSU Bachelor General Studies program will be available.
Since fall 2012, Northern has delivered Associate of Arts General Studies and Master of Education, Teaching and Learning Degrees at Huron Community Campus. In partnership with the Huron Community Campus, the university decided to offer this newest program after the city of Huron, Huron Workforce Development, and the HCC Board/Foundation expressed a demand for higher education by Huron area residents.
“We’re thrilled to expand our partnership with Huron Community Campus in a way that will benefit people around the region,” said NSU President Dr. Tim Downs. “Earning an associate degree could be only the first step for our students in Huron, leading them to continue their education at HCC or through our online programs.”
Registration is now open for fall 2020. To learn more about Northern’s new A.S. in Business Administration and Bachelor General Studies degrees in Huron, visit NSU Huron Community Campus.
