Dakota State to offer cyber security doctorate

Posted: Updated:

MADISON, S.D. (AP) - Dakota State University in Madison is further establishing its specialty in cyber security by offering a new doctoral degree this fall.

The doctor of science in cyber security degree is designed to prepare students for cyber security careers in government agencies and the private sector, or to teach the topic at higher education institutions. It marks just the second doctoral degree offered at Dakota State.

University officials expect to admit 20 students and graduate about 18 annually once the program is fully ramped up. The South Dakota Board of Regents approved the degree, but it must also receive approval by the Higher Learning Commission.

Madison Mayor Roy Lindsay says the addition of the degree will further strengthen the program, which has grown to draw students from both coasts.
