Students who wish to combine study in chemistry with further study in chemical engineering may do so under the Clemson University-Lander University Engineering Dual Degree Program.

Under this cooperative agreement students will spend the first three years of their college career at Lander University in a chemistry program of study and the remaining two years at Clemson University in chemical engineering.

A student who completes this five-year program of study will have had the experience of dividing his or her academic career between the liberal arts environment of a small university campus and the engineering climate of a large technically oriented university. This unique combination of study on two differently oriented campuses will provide a student with excellent engineering and chemistry training, complemented by study in the humanities and social sciences. Thus, a graduate from this dual degree program will be well trained to pursue a technical career strongly oriented to problems relevant to today's society.



Note: The information below provides convenient links to some of the courses required for this degree; however, it should not be used as a course registration guide. Please refer to the official Lander University Academic Catalog for the most accurate and up-to-date program requirements.

  • Upon completion of the 2nd year at Lander, students will have completed 78 credit hours of coursework. However, students will have only completed 28 of the 37 hours of General Education requirements. In addition to transferring back the needed general education credits, students will also have to complete and transfer back: CHE 2110, CHE 2300, CHE 2200, CHE 3390, CHE 3320, CHE 3400, CHE 4430, CHE 4440. Furthermore, students must complete the Clemson degree requirements for a BS in chemical engineering to obtain the BS degree in chemistry from Lander. This option is available ONLY to students who pursue a degree in CHEMICAL Engineering at Clemson.
  • Coursework must include at least 30 hours earned in 300 or above level courses, of which 12 hours must be in the major.
  • See the 4-year major guide for recommended order in which to take courses
