ESU, Wichita State announce dual-degree program

Emporia State and Wichita State universities are collaborating on a dual degree program.

ESU Provost Dr. David Cordle says the so-called "three-plus-two" program takes advantages of each university's strengths, combining those to help students at both institutions.

Cordle says this is a new pathway for students interested in engineering careers to reach their goals.

The program also has a so-called "reverse transfer" aspect, allowing students to take courses at Wichita State and have those count towards a bachelor's degree from ESU.
