Graduate Courses

Established in 1918, Dickinson State began as an educational institution training teachers to serve students in the region. With a continuous teacher education preparation program since its inception. It is a natural progressive move for DSU to expand its offerings into a graduate program. The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) is a response to the teacher shortages in North Dakota, especially in rural areas.
