South Dakota Masters in Education

South Dakota students rank among the highest in country in 8th-grade math and reading test scores; yet, the state ranks last in residents who have obtained an advanced degree. Thus, obtaining your own advanced degree will give you a clear advantage when seeking a teaching job in South Dakota.

The state is in need of teachers in a variety of subject areas, including math, science, world languages, physical education, and the arts—especially at the high school level. Your continuing education will give you the skills, techniques, and subject knowledge required to give South Dakota students the kind of education they’re entitled to.
