ABERDEEN, S.D. – The South Dakota Board of Regents have approved Northern State University to offer a new minor in legal studies and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in digital media.

A new minor in legal studies will provide Northern students with a stronger foundation for law school admissions. The minor also prepares graduates for careers as law enforcement officers, paralegals and other positions within the criminal justice system.

NSU will convert an existing specialization in graphic design within its art major to the stand-alone Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in digital media. The degree prepares graduates in highly technical areas such as commercial photography, video production and editing, web design and programming, 2-D animation, illustration, graphic design and product/packaging design.
