Dickinson State University is accepting applications for graduate courses in education beginning spring semester 2014. These are courses that can transfer to other institutions.

The three-credit education course offered spring semester is “Cultural Diversity in a Complex World,” taught by Dr. Cynthia Pemberton. The course examines curriculum and pedagogy from the perspective that all students, regardless of the group to which they belong, should be insured educational equity in school. This course promotes attitudes and teaching strategies that meet the needs of diverse students, families and communities.

This course will be offered face-to-face on the DSU campus on Monday evenings at 6-8:50 p.m. and via Interactive Video Network (IVN) at Williston State College and Bismarck State College at 7-9:50 p.m.

Classes begin Monday, Jan. 13, 2014. To be eligible to enroll in this class, students must be admitted to graduate studies at DSU.
