Dual Degree Programs

The Department of Physics offers two dual degree programs:

B.A. in Physics / B.S. in Engineering — Binary Engineering Program

Today's successful engineers have acquired a broad range of professional experiences and must have a well-rounded education in mathematics, the sciences, and the liberal arts.

The Department of Physics offers a Binary Engineering Program — a five-year, dual degree program resulting in a Bachelor of Arts in physics and a Bachelor of Science in engineering. Students first attend Duquesne University for three years and then spend two years at an associate school, either Case Western Reserve or the University of Pittsburgh. Recent graduates have obtained positions as chemical and environmental engineers with industry, engineering firms, and the US Air Force.

B.S. in Physics / M.S. in Education

Today's elementary and high school science teachers require a solid foundation in the sciences, along with strong teaching skills.

Duquesne University offers a five-year program resulting in a Bachelor of Science in Physics and a Master of Science in Education. Students begin as a Physics major, taking all Physics requirements.  In the third year, students apply to the School of Education for admission into the M.S. program. During the fourth year, students begin taking education courses and, during the fifth year, take exclusively education courses.

In an environment which emphasizes modern science teaching, as well as cutting-edge research, students are effectively prepared for their careers in science education.
