Undergraduate Degree Options

Option for students in the College of Arts and Sciences

College Students can apply for Electrical Science or Systems Science as a second major within the College. Under this Program, a College student will receive one diploma from the College of Arts and Sciences with a dual major (note that this option is only for students in the College, not Engineering students). Students interested in a second major with either ES or SS may contact the ESE Undergraduate Coordinator. To enroll, students must complete the Application for Second Major for Non-Engineering Students.
