Engineering & Nursing Dual-Degree Programs

Emory College offers dual-degree programs that allow students to pursue study in either arts or science at Emory and engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology or the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing. In this way, students receive a well-rounded liberal arts background from one of the best colleges in the US, while also taking engineering and nursing courses from one of the nation’s premier universities.


Students who participate in this program earn both a baccalaureate degree from Emory in the field of their choice and a BS from Georgia Tech. Oxford College students interested in the engineering dual degree program should review the information on the Emory College website and speak with the Oxford College engineering specialist advisers and the Office for Undergraduate Education Advising Office.

The Dual Degree program gives Emory undergraduates the opportunity to study in one of our liberal arts programs, or at the Goizueta Business School, before continuing on to Georgia Tech. Students can complete a major in any subject offered by Emory College or Goizueta Business School while completing the required pre-requisites for one of the programs offered through Georgia Tech. 

The Dual Degree program is not an official major at Emory. Rather, it is an academic opportunity for undergraduate students with an interest in Engineering to pursue bachelor’s degrees at both Emory and Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech). 

The minimum amount of time to complete both degrees is 5 years; however, the length of the program could take longer depending on the student's academic interests and studies. The program is sequential, and students will receive a degree from each institution upon completion. 


The Dual Degree Program in Nursing allows students to combine a liberal arts education with a nursing degree from Emory University. The participating student will attend Emory College of Arts & Sciences for three years and the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing (NHWSN) at Emory University for two years. Upon completion of the academic requirements of both schools, the student will receive a Bachelor of Arts or Science (BA or BS) degree from Emory College of Arts and Sciences and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree from the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing. Both degrees will be conferred by Emory University. 

Advisors in Pre-Health Advising will help students plan a course of study that fulfills the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing prerequisites, and all the requirements for the BA/BS degree to be awarded by Emory College.
