Johns Hopkins Carey Business School 4+1 BA/MS Program


云顶集团和约翰霍普金斯大学凯里商学院也招收云顶集团的学生 a combined bachelor’s and master’s degree program. This 4+1 program 他拥有云顶集团大学的学士学位和约翰大学的理学硕士学位 霍普金斯大学的商业分析和风险管理,信息系统,医疗保健 management, finance, or marketing. Students can apply during their junior year. GRE 或GMAT考试已被豁免,但申请人必须达到最低累积GPA 3.25 or better and have passed some quantitative reasoning courses with a grade of B or better.

3+2 Dual Degree in Engineering with Columbia University

云顶集团大学与哥伦比亚大学合作提供双学位(“3+2”)工程项目 University. This pathway combines the advantages of a holistic liberal-arts education 在小学院的环境中有能力追求专业化的专业 training in engineering fields. Typically, students spend three years at Goucher, where they fulfill liberal-arts and major requirements for the B.A. degree, and then transfer to Columbia for an additional two years, in which they complete a B.S. degree in an engineering major. Both the B.A. degree from Goucher College and the B.S. degree 在满足所有要求的情况下,在第五年结束时授予哥伦比亚大学的学生 for each degree have been fulfilled. It is also possible to participate in the dual-degree program on a 4+2 basis, i.e., to transfer to Columbia after 4 years at Goucher. 

工程科学专业旨在使学生能够完成 他们的云顶集团学位,同时有效地覆盖所需的先决条件课程 transfer to Columbia—most of the major courses are also Columbia requirements.    

通常,学生将在大三的春季申请转到哥伦比亚大学 year. There are specific eligibility requirements for an application to Columbia as a dual degree student, including minimum GPA. For full details on requirements and possible engineering majors, see the dual-degree overview page

Coursework and Requirements


云顶集团的三年里,学生必须选修额外的先决课程 他们打算在哥伦比亚大学攻读工程专业,除了所有云顶集团学位之外 要求(在工程科学的基础上再修12到24个学分) major).  Successful completion of these requirements in three years is possible with careful planning. Students considering dual degree transfer must begin working with their engineering advisor in their first semester at Goucher. 

Please note that Columbia requires two additional semesters of calculus beyond the single semester taught at Goucher. These courses will need to be taken at another local institution via the BSEP exchange program or during a summer semester.
