The Department Physics and Astronomy at Minnesota State University Moorhead, in cooperation with the Institute of Technology at the University of Minnesota, have established a Dual Degree Program. The Dual Degree Program allows students to enroll in a prescribed set of courses at MSUM and after three years, transfer to the Institute of Technology at the University of Minnesota. Upon completion of the credits to earn the B.S. Degree in Civil, Mechanical, or Electrical Engineering at the University of Minnesota, and upon completion of one of those engineering specializations, students will be granted the B.S. Degree in Physics at MSUM.
Students enrolled in the Dual Degree Program are guaranteed admission to the Institute of Technology with a significantly lower minimum GPA than those transferring from other programs. The University of Minnesota waives the general education requirements for Dual Degree Program students who have completed MSUM’s Liberal Arts and Sciences Curriculum program. International students enrolled in the Dual Degree Program pay one and a half times the University of Minnesota in-state tuition upon transfer to the Institute of Technology.
MSUM has a similar arrangement with the University of North Dakota for some engineering programs. For more information about the dual degree opportunities at MSUM, please contact the Department Physics.
