Dickinson State, U Mary form partnership

DICKINSON, N.D. – In a rare public-private school partnership, Dickinson State University announced Tuesday that it will collaborate with the University of Mary to offer an assortment of advanced degrees.

DSU, which offers bachelor’s-level and associate degrees, will team with the Bismarck-based Catholic institution to provide students the opportunity to receive master’s degrees in business, nursing, education and counseling beginning in March.

In addition to the master’s opportunities at DSU, the schools also outlined a plan to explore the possibility of a “4+1 accelerated module” in which a student could earn a four-year degree from DSU and a master’s from U-Mary in five years, one less year than the standard six years needed to obtain a master’s-level degree.
