Special Programs

Dual Degree in Arts and Letters and Engineering

The five-year Dual-Degree Program in Arts and Letters / Engineering (AL/ENG) enables engineering students to combine professional training in a field of engineering with a richer experience of humanistic, artistic, and social scientific perspectives than normally would be possible within the confines of a four-year engineering degree program.

Glynn Family Honors Program

Glynn scholars enjoy an intense academic experience--they attend small, discussion-based classes, undertake original research projects, and are mentored by a select group of outstanding faculty. The Glynn Family Honors Program is by invitation only.

Self-Designed Majors

Interested students, in consultation with three faculty sponsors from at least two departments, can present a detailed written proposal of their major to the Undergraduate Studies Advisory Committee for consideration. All special majors must culminate in a capstone project or other work of between 30 and 50 pages (7,500–15,000 words).
