In the spring of the sophomore year, students select a concentration from among 29 academic departments.
In addition to satisfying departmental requirements, students may earn certificates of proficiency (similar to Minors at other institutions) in one or more of 47 certificate programs, including applied and computational mathematics, American studies and creative writing.
B.S.E. Degree Program
The School of Engineering and Applied Science, which grants the Bachelor of Science in Engineering, offers engineering students courses in computing, mathematics, and the physical sciences. B.S.E seekers must also fulfill general education requirements in the humanities and social sciences.
In the spring of the freshman year, students select a concentration in one of six departments. During their junior and senior years, B.S.E. students take advanced courses in their field of concentration and carry out independent research projects.
B.S.E. students are encouraged to pursue multidisciplinary study, and many choose to undertake interdepartmental work. Note: Strong majors reflect strong departments; thus, some of the best majors include Economics, Classics, Mathematics and Physics.
