BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The University of Mary is expanding its course offerings in the oil patch.

The Bismarck college began offering undergraduate business classes in Watford City in the fall of 2014. Now it’s including a master of education program for local teachers.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1QlqPHy) that the McKenzie County School District hired 26 new teachers this year. District Superintendent Steve Holen says many of them believe it’s a good time to pursue graduate studies.

The education courses are expected to start in early 2016.
