WSU, Emporia State Strike Dual Degree Deal

A new agreement will allow students to start science and math degrees at Emporia State University and finish them at Wichita State.

University leaders signed the agreement Tuesday.

It allows students to spend their first three years at Emporia State and their last two at Wichita State.

Students completing the so-called "3+2" program will have earned bachelor of science degrees in mathematics or physics from Emporia State.

They'll also have bachelor's degrees in any of several engineering fields from Wichita State.

Emporia State provost David Cordle says the program makes "good use of the resources and strengths" at both universities.
