Students attracted to a Christian liberal arts curriculum who are also seriously considering an engineering career may choose to spend three years at Gordon and then apply to transfer to an engineering school for two more years. Gordon College has a formal agreement with the Viterbi School of Engineering at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles (this agreement does not guarantee admission); however, students may apply to transfer to any accredited engineering institution to complete this program.  3-2 Engineering students will receive a B.A. degree* in Physics, but will also complete coursework intended to prepare them for transfer to an accredited program at an engineering institution, from which they may earn a B.S. degree. In addition to Gordon’s Core Curriculum, the following courses should be taken at Gordon:


Students completing the physics major are not required to take the core course NSM 202 - The Scientific Enterprise .

*A Bachelor of Science degree from Gordon College is possible in consultation with the department chair.
