At Fontbonne, we want to help you maximize your college experience. In our program, you have the opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in any major and a degree in engineering in just five years.
Through Fontbonne’s partnerships with University of Missouri-Kansas City and Washington University in St. Louis, you may apply to the engineering school of your choice during your junior year, which will allow you to earn a Bachelor of Science degree from Fontbonne and a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering from either the University of Missouri-Kansas City or Washington University, St. Louis.
Students usually follow either a 3-2 or a 4-2 plan, entering the engineering program after their junior or senior year. Students go on to complete studies of concentrated engineering at the School of Computing and Engineering at University of Missouri-Kansas City, the School of Engineering at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville or the James McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University. Each school retains its own tuition rates and separate financial aid packages.
You will receive a fundamental education in your core subjects and be positioned for success in one of two custom engineering programs, letting you earn two degrees in just five years.
Fontbonne University students may choose a dual degree program of study in collaboration with either the School of Computing and Engineering at the University of Missouri-Kansas City or the James McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis.
This program may be combined with any major but is most easily pursued in conjunction with a major in applied mathematics or biology. You must complete the first three years of required work on a major at Fontbonne. A minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of B+ (3.25 on a 4.0 scale) or better, both overall and in science and mathematics courses, is required for admission to the dual degree program. Applicants with lower GPAs are considered on a case-by-case basis. Upon satisfactory completion of the program, you will be awarded bachelor’s degrees from both Fontbonne University and the University of Missouri-Kansas City or from both Fontbonne University and Washington University in St. Louis.
The Center for One Health at Fontbonne University is an interdisciplinary group with an interest in planetary health — the science, ethics, policy, economics, education and advocacy of One Health.
