DSU / SDSU Co-Op Program

Dakota State University offers four-year baccalaureate programs in Elementary Education and Elementary Education / Special Education. 

South Dakota State University offers a four-year baccalaureate program in Early Childhood Education.  All three programs are approved by the South Dakota Department of Education (DOE) and meet the state requirements for certification.  A cooperative agreement between Dakota State University and South Dakota State University allows students completing any of these three programs access to courses and programs at both institutions.
