Harris-Stowe State University Will Soon Offer Advanced Degrees

St. Louis, MO (KTRS)  Harris-Stowe State University will soon offer more educational opportunities.

Governor Jay Nixon visited the historically black university Thursday afternoon for a ceremonial signing of Senate Bill 334, which allows the school to offer graduate degrees for the first time.

Nixon said that higher education is no longer a luxury for the fortunate few. He added “It’s a necessity. Among the most rapidly growing occupations, especially in the areas of science and technology, more than half require post secondary education. The math here is pretty simple. Better jobs equal better pay and better pay equals a better standard of living for workers and their families.”

Senate Bill 334, which was sponsored by State Senator Jamilah Nasheed, was officially signed into law on Tuesday.  The legislation goes into effect on August 28th.
