Jamestown College awarding first master's degrees todayJAMESTOWN, N.D. -- Jamestown College is awarding the first master's degrees in the school's 127-year history.
The school on Saturday was holding its commencement ceremony, and six graduates were receiving master's degrees in education curriculum and instruction.
They all are teachers at area schools who began the master's degree program in spring 2008, taking classes one night per week and completing a thesis or final project.
College President Robert Badal (bah-DEHL') says the school looks forward to expanding its degree offerings even more.
The school on Saturday also was presenting Gov. John Hoeven with an honorary doctor of laws degree.
