Major, Minors and Certificates

Double Majors 

Many students complete the requirements for a departmental major in arts and sciences while completing the requirements for a Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree, or satisfy simultaneously the requirements for two engineering majors. The second major requirements consist of the set of specific and elective courses in the discipline which are required by the department for its primary majors. Biomedical/Electrical and Computer Engineering and Biomedical/Mechanical are common double majors. Among the second majors most commonly completed in Arts & Sciences by engineering students are Computer Science, and Mathematics.


Most of the departments in Trinity College of Arts and Sciences have established minors and engineering students are eligible to enroll in them. The courses required for minors are specified by the department/academic program. A minimum of five courses is required, including at least three above the introductory level.

Certificate Programs 

Certificate programs are topically organized courses of study that offer a distinctive, usually interdisciplinary, approach to a subject matter not available within any single academic unit. They include: The Arts; Dance; Film/Video/Digital; Health Policy; Markets and Management Studies; Neurosciences. See Pratt's certificate programs.
