Double Degree Program: BA in German and BS in Mechanical Engineering
Qualified students may earn both a B.A. in German and a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering through a dual degree program offered by the Department of Classifcal and Modern Languages, Literatures, and Cultures and the Department of Mechanical Engineering.
Students in this program must complete the requirements for a major in German through the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the requirements for a major in Mechanical Engineering through the College of Engineering.
This five-year course of study includes participation in the Junior Year in Munich Program and an internship in Germany.
Students with this dual major in German and Mechanical Engineering are eligible to apply for scholarships available through the Department of Department of Classical and Modern Languages, Literatures, and Cultures and the Junior Year in Munich Program. For more information, contact the major advisers in German and/or Mechanical Engineering.
Students without prior knowledge of German should plan to enter the program with either German 1060 (Intensive German) or German 1010 (Elementary German). We encourage you to consider taking German 1060, since that will give you more language training before you depart for Germany; the better your language skills, the greater your ability to take advantage of opportunities in Munich.
Below are some general plans regarding how you might chose to make progress towards a double degree in German and Mechanical Engineering.
Please note that these suggested plans may change depending on curricular changes within the German and/or Mechanical Engineering majors. (See the New Requirements for a Major in German which reduced the credit requirements from 33 to 31.) Please contact the major advisers in German and/or Mechanical Engineering with questions about your individual plans.
