The department has been recognized for its accomplishments in teaching and scholarship. Research in the department has been supported by multiple sources, such as the Department of Energy, the National Security Agency, and the National Science Foundation.

Our foremost concern as a department is excellence in instruction, so we routinely bring our students into our work, fostering close, mentoring relationships, which is one of the benefits that comes from a small liberal arts school like Davidson.
