Integrated Science

The integrated science program provides you with an opportunity to pursue studies that go beyond the traditional major in a single field of sciences.

Why Study Integrated Science?

As an integrated science major at USD, you will learn to comprehensively explore issues, ideas, artifacts and events related to science. Our curriculum helps you learn to break down complex topics and apply engineering design to create solutions to problems.

Courses from the A.S. degree will transfer into a B.S. degree in biomedical engineering and prepare students for a B.S. in medical laboratory science and biology. This program is held at the Community College for Sioux Falls.
