From environmental cleanup to designing waterways, sustainability requires specialized training in mathematics and science. Gain two valuable bachelor’s degrees—in engineering and environmental science—as part of a unique academic program in conjunction with the University of California, Berkeley.
About the Program
Climate challenges to healthy ecosystems demand creative, multi-disciplinary solutions. The engineering partnership program between Mills and UC Berkeley enables you to earn two bachelor’s degrees, a BA in environmental science at Mills and a BS in engineering from UC Berkeley, within five years. You’ll spend your first three years at Mills studying math, physics, chemistry, and biology in a liberal arts environment. For your final two years, you’ll transition to Berkeley and fulfill requirements for a degree in civil engineering. Throughout, you’ll be guided by professors who are dedicated to your success.
Once admitted into this program, you’ll receive the support you need to complete the BA in environmental science requirements within three years at Mills. In small, collaborative classes, you’ll pose research questions, use sophisticated lab equipment, and powerfully communicate research findings. Your professors will get to know you personally and work with you individually to develop your scientific skills.
Students are guaranteed admission to Berkeley’s engineering program provided they have made satisfactory academic progress at Mills and have met the minimum Mills GPA of 3.6 upon admittance to the BA+BS engineering program.
You’ll graduate with two bachelor’s degrees from two highly regarded institutions and a valuable advantage as you enter the workforce. Your advanced scientific knowledge and technical skills will equip you for success at for-profit companies, government agencies, and research and consulting organizations.
