The state Board of Regents on Wednesday is to vote on adding the programs at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology in Rapid City and the University of South Dakota in Vermillion.

The media reports that the programs would begin next fall if they're approved.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard's proposed budget for the Board of Regents includes nearly $2 million for the new doctoral programs. Both universities would add four physics faculty members and six graduate assistants.
