Stonehill College offers an Engineering Program  in collaboration with The University of Notre Dame. Students in this 3+2 Engineering Program with the University of Notre Dame receive a B.S. in Environmental Science from Stonehill College and a B.S. in Environmental Engineering from the University of Notre Dame.

Environmental Sciences and Studies students are strongly encouraged to study away from campus for at least one semester; studying another ecosystem and the human culture(s) that resides there greatly enhances one’s preparation for environmental work. Options available to ENV students, in addition to traditional study in another country, include a semester at the University of Portland, Oregon or the SEA semester oceanography sailing program based at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.

Students in the major and minor programs frequently enroll in the upper-level courses from a variety of disciplines listed in the major without completing the pre-requisites that majors in those disciplines are required to complete. In these cases students will need approval prior to course selection.

Students in this program typically complete the following courses:

Course work taken in the first year at The University of Notre Dame fulfill the senior capstone requirement of the Stonehill major.
