About the Department of Chemistry, Biochemistry and Physics

In many ways we offer, the best of what both large research universities and smaller four-year liberal arts institutions can provide. Our department is large enough to provide numerous research and internship opportunities to perform them. At the same time, our department is also small enough to provide direct and regular contact with our faculty.

Our 19 faculty are located in the Daktronics Engineering Hall (Physics) and the Avera Health and Science Center (Chemistry and Biochemistry).
