Jamestown College awarded the first master's degrees in the school's 127-year history during the Commencement ceremony on May 8 at the Jamestown Civic Center.
Six graduates received master's degrees in education – curriculum and instruction.
"We are very proud to once again make history at Jamestown College by granting our very first master's degrees,” says Jamestown College President Robert S. Badal. "We look forward to continuing to expand our degree offerings to meet the needs of both graduate and undergraduate students.”
Those receiving master's degrees were Brenda Jensen, Cynthia McGuire, Patricia Schlenker and Scott Schmiedeberg, all Jamestown; Sara Taszarek, Kulm; and Dallas Dockter, Valley City. All are teachers at area schools and began the master's degree program in the spring of 2008, taking classes one evening per week and completing a thesis or final project.
Another cohort of students will begin the program in the fall.
