Applied Physics, B.A.
Dual Degree Engineering Program
Whitworth's dual degree engineering program will give you the broad foundation of a liberal arts education, as well as technical training to be successful in a variety of engineering disciplines.
You will begin your education with two or three years of coursework at Whitworth and then spend the remainder of the five-year program at one of our top-notch partner engineering schools: Washington University in St. Louis, Columbia University, Washington State University or the University of Southern California. Upon completion, you will earn two degrees: a bachelor of arts in applied physics from Whitworth and a bachelor of science in a specific field of engineering from the partner school.
Also referred to as a 3-2 program because of the timeline, the program combines the student-focused benefits of a Whitworth education with the vast resources of a large research university. Students report that the wide knowledge base and the critical-thinking, teamwork and communication skills they gained at Whitworth have enabled them to thrive in both engineering school and the professional environment.
