Earlham's 3-2 Pre-Engineering Program provides a wonderful opportunity for students considering a career in engineering who want the experience of a broad, liberal arts education that is seldom available to students in engineering schools. By combining three years at Earlham with two years at an engineering school, students can emphasize the liberal arts as well as the technical aspects of their education. At the end of those five years, the student receives two degrees: a B.A. from Earlham in pre-engineering studies, and a B.S. from the engineering program. For more information about this opportunity, contact Assistant Professor of Physics Ellen Keister β€” the 3/2 Faculty Liaison. Typically students spend three years at Earlham studying fundamental science and mathematics and the liberal arts, followed by two years of specialization at an affiliated engineering school. The required pre-engineering coursework leaves about 2/3 of your course credits for the liberal arts, some of which must fulfill the general education requirements, but the remainder can be filled with classes of your choosing! In the past, 3-2 students have completed minors in Computer Science, Physics and Management, though other fields are also possible. In addition to their course-work on campus, 3-2 students have been active in Earlham’s athletic, theatre and music programs, as well as participating on off-campus programs.
