History of Science

Benedictine University has a tradition of excellence in undergraduate science programs. Our founders include men like naturalists Frs. Edmund and Hilary Jurica and Fr. Theodore Suchy, who believed that scientists should not be afraid to get their hands dirty, and professors like Rose Carney, Frank Shonka and William Jesse, who worked on the Manhattan Project under the bleachers at the University of Chicago.
