Area Colleges Team Up On Collaborative Learning Program

Black Hills State University (BHSU), South Dakota School of Mines & Technology (SDSM&T), and Western Dakota Tech (WDT) have teamed up to allow all three institutions’ students more choice in their course of study. According to KOTA Territory News, students taking part in the program will be able to transfer credits among the three institutions to take advantage of each’s unique benefits.

Students at BHSU or SDSM&T will be able to take advantage of WDT’s trade school and hands on courses in areas like electrician work or mining. These types of collaborative courses and skills may also help students find higher paying jobs upon graduation. The program will also allow students studying at one type of institution get a feel for what other schools may be like without committing to a transfer.
