Skidmore College offers qualified students the opportunity to earn dual degrees in liberal arts and engineering through its cooperative 3/2 Program with Dartmouth College or the 3 + 2 Program with Clarkson University.
3/2 Program with Dartmouth College
Through the dual degree program with the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College, students majoring in mathematics or physics at Skidmore may earn both the bachelor of arts degree from Skidmore at the end of the fourth year and, at the end of the fifth year, the bachelor of engineering degree from Dartmouth.
An additional one or two years may lead to the master of engineering and/or the master of business administration degree from Dartmouth.
A student entering this combined program must major in mathematics or physics, must have a grade point average of at least a 3.0 in science and mathematics, and must have approval of the Engineering Advisory Committee.
Students interested in this program must have the necessary course background before entering Dartmouth in the junior year. Therefore it is desireable to select the program at the earliest possible date, preferably during the first year, to ensure meeting the prerequisite requirements. The Engineering Advisory Committee does not recommend students accelerate in the program.
At the end of the fall semester of the sophomore year the student shall apply to the Engineering Advisory Committee for consideration. The Committee will recommend to Dartmouth only those students whom it believes are likely to profit from the program.
3 + 2 Program with Clarkson University
The 3 + 2 Program in Engineering, offered in cooperation with the School of Engineering at Clarkson University, combines three years of study at Skidmore with two years of additional study at Clarkson. During their senior year in absentia, while continuing their studies at Clarkson, students fulfill the bachelor of arts requirements (including major and all-college requirements) and receive their degrees from Skidmore at the end of the fourth year of the program. Upon successful completion of the additional year of prescribed study, qualified students will be eligible for the bachelor of science degree in engineering from Clarkson.
At the beginning of the junior year, the student applies to the Engineering Advisory Committee for consideration. The Committee will recommend only those students it believes are likely to profit from the program and who have met all prerequisite requirements.
