3+2 Engineering Program with Georgia Institute of Technology or Auburn University

Advisor: Dr. Charles Benesh and Dr. Joe Iskra

Program Description: Wesleyan's 3-2 Pre-Engineering Program provides an outstanding opportunity for students considering a career in engineering who want the experience of a liberal arts education that is seldom available to students in engineering schools. Typically students spend three years at Wesleyan, studying fundamental science, mathematics and liberal arts coursework, followed by two years of specialization at an affiliated engineering school. The required pre-engineering coursework leaves substantial credits for the liberal arts, some of which must fulfill the general education requirements, but the remainder can be filled with classes of your choosing! Upon the successful completion of this nominally five-year course of study, the student will be awarded two undergraduate degrees - a bachelor of arts with a major in dual degree engineering from Wesleyan and a bachelor of science with an engineering major from the cooperating university.

Requirments for the Dual-Degree Engineering major:

CHM 101, CHM 102

MAT 205, MAT 206, MAT 207, MAT 208, MAT 210, MAT 300, MAT 405

WIS 101 or ENG 101, ENG 111

CSC 216, PHY 121, PHY 122, PHY 205, PHY 212

Associated majors: In addition, a student could major in the Applied Mathematical Science major to meet the pre-engineering program requirements. It may be completed along with general education and proficiency requirements in three years, provided that the student is ready for Calculus I at the start of her freshman year and is committed to a rigorous course of study. The student who successfully completes the applied mathematical science major in preparation for entry into engineering school will be awarded two undergraduate degrees - a bachelor of arts with a major in applied mathematical science from Wesleyan and a bachelor of science with an engineering major from the cooperating university.

Three Year Curricular Plan:
The pre-engineering student should take at least 15 hours each semester and should be prepared to finish her Wesleyan courses in three years, prior to matriculation into the Engineering Program at the partner institution. The following courses must be taken at Wesleyan:

3+3 Law Program with Mercer University Law School

Advisor: Dr. Nicholas Steneck

Career Description: A Juris Doctor (J.D.) leads to a broad range of careers that impact people’s lives. Lawyers help with buying homes, writing wills, prosecuting and defending criminals, creating business contracts, and attempting to protect people from litigation. A law degree may also open up law-related careers in government, business, higher education, health care, communication, and numerous other fields. Legal practice is intellectually challenging and requires the use of ethics, reasoning and judgment. To practice law, students must typically complete an undergraduate degree, earn a Juris Doctor (JD) diploma from an accredited law school and pass their state's bar examination
 
3 + 3 Program Description: Mercer University School of Law and Wesleyan College recognize that certain students have the ability and readiness to complete their undergraduate education and their law degree training in less than the normally required seven years of study. The 3 + 3 program provides an opportunity for select students to accelerate their course of study by completing both an undergraduate degree (from Wesleyan) and the Juris Doctor degree (from Mercer University) in approximately six years of full time study. Students enrolled in this program are expected to complete all Wesleyan College core requirements, including requirements of their chosen major, with a minimum of two and a half years in residence and at least 90 credit hours at Wesleyan prior to attending Law School. This program is recommended for majors in Politics & Global Studies (BA) or English (BA); students may elect other majors, but MUST have a pre law minor and engage in the requisite coursework required for the 3 + 3 program. To be considered for Mercer Law, students must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or above in Wesleyan College coursework and score at or above the median LSAT score of the preceding year’s entering class.

Three Year Curricular Plan:
The 3 + 3  student should take at least 15 hours each semester and should be prepared to finish her Wesleyan courses in three years, prior to application for the Law School at Mercer. The following courses must be taken at Wesleyan:

Coursework Plan:
Year One:  Fall Semester    
WISe 101, Foreign Language, GenEd, POL 115, ENG or POL or other major coursework    

Year Two:  Spring Semester
Foreign Language, COM 202, ENG 111, HIS 130, ENG or POL or other major coursework

Year Two:  Fall Semester    
ENG or POL or other major coursework, HIS 135, ACC 201, PDE    

Year Two:  Spring Semester
ENG or POL or other major coursework, POL 320, BUS 310, PDE

Year Three:  Fall Semester    
ENG or POL or other major coursework, GenEd, COM 340, POL 319    

Year Three:  Spring Semester
ENG, POL or other major coursework, GenEd, PHI 223
