Five-Year Dual Degree
Westminster's Engineering 3-2 Program
The 3-2 program enhances your preparation for a career in engineering by providing you with a broader educational background available at a liberal arts school. You will start your college career in the supportive environment of a small college, then complete engineering classes at one of our partner schools, the University of Southern California or Washington University in St. Louis.
- After you finish the program, you will have two bachelor degrees -- a B.A. or B.S. in mathematics, physics, biology, computer science, or chemistry from Westminster and a B.S. in a specific engineering field from the partner university you attend.
- Small classes, experiential learning, and faculty mentoring. The individualized support you get while you complete your liberal arts core and your foundational science classes at Westminster will have a huge impact later in your career.
How Long it Takes
Under the Engineering 3-2 program, you attend Westminster College for three years and then transfer for an additional two years of study at USC or Washington University in St. Louis. In order to transfer, you must maintain a 3.0 GPA, meet the entrance requirements for the partner university, and earn the recommendation of the 3-2 program advisor. Certain engineering fields require specific pre-requisite courses that are not offered by Westminster and must be completed online or at another area school.
