From environmental cleanup to designing waterways, sustainability requires specialized training in mathematics and science. Gain two valuable bachelor’s degrees—in civil engineering and environmental science—as part of a unique academic program in conjunction with the University of California, Berkeley.
About the Civil Engineering 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 civil 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 UC 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. In small, collaborative classes at Mills, 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.
After three years at Mills, you'll continue on to Berkeley’s Civil Engineering Program provided that you have made satisfactory academic progress and have met the minimum Mills GPA of 3.6 required for 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 or-profit companies, government agencies, and research and consulting organizations.
