Main Content

Engineering Physics (3-2 Program)

Monumental ideas. Deep connections. Inventive solutions.


Our engineering physics (3-2) major combines foundational engineering courses with a liberal arts education to prepare students for the next level of their education and ultimately, their career.

Engineering students also obtain both a bachelor of arts degree in engineering physics and a bachelor of science degree in engineering.

Students spend three years at Saint Anselm completing the liberal arts courses and science and mathematics prerequisites. They then continue their education at a cooperating university to earn their degree in either mechanical, civil, or electrical or chemical engineering. 

Official Partners

In consultation with the Dean and student advisors, students may also pursue completion of the program with a non-official partner school. However, admission to to those schools is not guaranteed as there is no official agreement in place between the schools.

Recent graduates have successfully completed the engineering program with Worcester Polytechnic Institute (Worcester, Mass.), Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (Troy, N.Y.), and Wentworth Institute of Technology (Boston, Mass.).

Four years at Saint Anselm - major in applied physics

If an engineering physics major decides to spend all four years at Saint Anselm (it's been known to happen!), they can earn a degree in applied physics.

Recent applied physics graduates continued their education at: Dartmouth College, Yale University, Boston College, Tufts University, and The Pennsylvania State University to name a few.
