Honored for Excellence

USD has recognized us for extraordinary academics with their Award for Academic Excellence and Innovation. So has the National Science Foundation, by awarding us with our Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program, aimed at providing intensive research experiences for students during the summer. We're small enough to focus on the needs of individual students, but large enough to provide the resources for a rich and varied educational environment.

Our Advantages

  • We are one of only ten of former Gov. Rounds' 2010 Research Centers.
  • Our students have received Goldwater, Truman, and National Science Foundation scholarships.
  • Our degrees are approved by the American Chemical Society.
  • The importance of Research is emphasized at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, involving all faculty members working closely with students.
  • Scholarship Opportunities are plentiful.
  • Our graduates go on to successful graduate programs and a wide variety of careers.
