Dr. Nano, I presume?

Regents approve six new doctoral programs

    MADISON, S.D. - The state Board of Regents added six new doctorate programs Friday, although three are contingent on funding from the Legislature.

    The doctorates requiring new state money are:

  • Nanoscience and nanoengineering at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology in Rapid City.
  • Computational science and statistics to be offered through South Dakota State in Brookings and the University of South Dakota in Vermillion.
  • A combined M.D. and Ph.D. program at USD.
  • In his budget address to state lawmakers, Gov. Mike Rounds has recommended spending almost $1.1 million to help pay for the new programs. Lawmakers will consider his request when they meet for the 2005 session in January. More here
