Minot State University has redesigned its graduate English program to feature an online learning platform. The online model will assist teachers in working toward a master’s degree or completing professional development hours. The application period for 2024 runs from April 1--May 15. Classes begin May 28. 

Dr. Samuel Stinson and Dr. Laura Zucca-Scott co-teach the courses in conjunction with the Northern Plains Writing Project. The Project will be conducted online. 

With the program redesign, the Writing Project offers:

  • Financial awards that cover substantial costs for six graduate credits, books, and registration fees.
  • Credits can be used as part of the Master of Education program, with concentration in English. The English concentration qualifies teachers to teach at the university level. 

  • Opportunities to convene at the North Dakota Council of Teachers of English Conference to discuss projects completed through the NPWP. (Note: This option is currently impacted by the pandemic.)
  • Reimbursement up to $100 for presenting in-service at your school.
  • Community-building via networking and brainstorming with others.

For additional information, contact Samuel Stinson, NPWP Director, at samuel.stinson@ndus.edu.
