Liberal arts foundation + engineering school education

Double degree program, twice the prestige

You can add an engineering program from one of three top-50-ranking universities in the U.S. offered for Susquehanna students majoring in chemistry, computer science, mathematics, or physics.

With our dual degree program, you will earn a

  • Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree from Susquehanna, a national liberal arts university
  • AND
  • Bachelor of Science degree in engineering from Columbia University, Washington University of St. Louis or Case Western Reserve University.

It only takes one extra year. That’s two bachelor’s degrees from two universities in just five years! You can potentially earn a master’s degree by adding one more year to your joint degree program.

100%+ more skills and resources for success

The power of this combined degree program gives you a competitive edge for your career and expands your graduate study opportunities.

Mentored by supportive science faculty, you study in the sciences your first three years at Susquehanna, enhanced by coursework that includes arts and humanities electives. Unlike traditional engineering majors, you will gain a broad-based liberal arts foundation with essential skills, such as

  • Communications
  • Creativity
  • Critical thinking
  • Leadership

Then, you wrap up your final two years, completing intensive engineering courses at an ABET-accredited program at a partner institution offering an array of concentrations. You also will benefit from the resources of both institutions, including career centers, alumni networks, faculty mentors, etc.

To support students in navigating their coursework while at Susquehanna, students are paired with two advisors: one faculty from the student’s major department as well as the 3+2 program liaison advisor. The major advisor will support the student by ensuring that they are on track to complete their program requirements within the accelerated timeframe. The 3+2 liaison works with students to identify the best choice of engineering major and keep track of the criteria required for the admission process.

Students can also work with both advisors to develop a more flexible 4+2 option so they can take full advantage of academic, extracurricular, or athletic opportunities during their time at SU.
