New science degree programs at USD, NSU

Posted: Updated:

MADISON, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota Board of Regents has approved two new degrees related to science.

The Board approved a bachelor's degree in medical biology at The University of South Dakota and an associate degree in biotechnology at Northern State University. Both will be available to students starting this fall.

The medical biology degree is designed to prepare students for admission into medical school and other healthcare professional programs like dentistry, physician assistant, physical therapy and podiatry. The degree follows a pre-medical curriculum.

The biotechnology degree combines several different fields of study like genetics, molecular biology and cell biology and links them to applications in fields like chemical engineering and information technology.
