Liberal Arts Foundation + Engineering School Education

Double Degree Program, Twice the Prestige

Add an engineering program from a top 50 ranked university offered for Susquehanna students. With our dual degree program, you will earn both a

Benefits

  • Get two bachelor’s degrees from two universities in just five years!
  • The 3+2 option gives you time to decide on an engineering discipline. 
  • You gain resources from both institutions including faculty mentors, career centers, alumni networks, etc.

Wiser, Better Prepared Engineer

The power of this combined degree program gives you a competitive edge through greater confidence and competitive skills that employers seek.

Mentored by supportive science faculty, you study in the sciences your first three years at Susquehanna.

Unlike traditional engineering majors, our arts and humanities courses, smaller class settings and student research help you develop essential skills, such as

  • Teamwork and leadership
  • Critical thinking and problem solving
  • Effective writing and presentation delivery

You will also develop other lifelong skills such as active listening, cultural competency, empathy, emotional intelligence and adaptability, and you will be ready to complete your two years of engineering at a partner institution.

Two STEM Advisors Mentor You for Success

To support you in navigating your coursework while at Susquehanna, you are paired with two advisors: one faculty from your major department as well as a 3+2 program liaison advisor.

  • Your major advisor supports you by ensuring that you are on track to complete your course requirements within the accelerated timeframe.
  • Your 3+2 liaison works with you to identify your best choice of engineering major and to keep you on track for admission requirements.
