Our students have several opportunities to travel and present at conferences around the country.
Research and graduate education opportunities offered at USD fall within the themes of photodynamics and nanomaterials offered in close-knit research settings.
Focused in four core areas that bridge these traditional demarcations: (1) Electrochemistry and Surface Science, (2) Molecular Spectroscopy and Photodynamics, (3) Organic Synthesis and Chemical Reaction Mechanisms and (4) Nanostructured Composites for Catalytic and Sensing Applications.
Focused on the chemistry of new materials including synthesis, characterization and applications with an emphasis on nanomaterials.
Application requirements can be found at Graduate School Admission Requirements and include:
