Four year degree; Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BS)
Benefit from the richness of a liberal arts education grounded in Christian, Catholic, Benedictine values, while gaining the technological skills to pursue a wide range of careers in engineering. In the engineering science dual degree program, you can earn a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Mary and a Bachelor of Engineering degree or Master of Science degree from the University of Minnesota.
How the Engineering Science Dual Degree Program Works
The University of Mary has teamed with the University of Minnesota to offer engineering science students a unique diversity of opportunities. You have several options for completing your degree:
- Complete three years of study–including a comprehensive liberal arts program and the required pre-engineering courses in math and science–at the University of Mary, then transfer to the University of Minnesota to complete your degree.
- Complete your Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Mary and then transfer to the University of Minnesota to complete your Bachelor of Engineering degree.
- Complete your bachelor’s degree at the University of Mary and then earn a Master of Science degree from the University of Minnesota.
Whether to pursue a bachelor’s or master’s degree program will depend on your individual goals, your area of study, and whether your field of engineering requires professional certification. Your University of Mary advisor will help you plan a course of study to meet your objectives and answer any questions you may have.
