BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) - The University of South Dakota and South Dakota State University will begin offering four existing degree programs online.

The state Board of Regents says it has approved requests from the two universities to offer the programs online with no new state resources required. The programs are designed for adults who want to pursue new careers or advanced study without relocating or commuting to a campus.

Starting this summer, USD will offer its master's degree in interdisciplinary studies online.

Beginning this fall, SDSU will offer its master's degree in human sciences online, and USD will offer its bachelor's degree of business administration in management and its master's degree in kinesiology and sport science online.
