The Music Program is recognized for its quality through the National Association of the Schools for Music. The Theodore Roosevelt Honors Leadership Program is recognized by the National Collegiate Honors Council as being the premier honors program in the nation. These accreditations by national agencies attest to the quality and strength of our over-all academic program at DSU.

Several of these faculty are nationally known authorities in their fields of study.

Certainly by the time you are a senior, you will know these faculty on a first-name basis as both mentor and friend.

The physical plant of Dickinson State is modern and comfortable to provide you with buildings where living and learning are enhanced. Several major renovation projects (the Student Center, Klinefelter Hall and the Murphy Hall Science Building) are noteworthy for their beauty and practicality. And, several more major projects are planned for the future. Stoxen Library is completely automated and the up-to-date computer facilities provide more student access than larger universities can.
