New College of Florida and UF want to produce more innovative graduates with five-year, dual-degree program

From Tampa Bay Business Journal, July 14, 2020

Sarasota-based New College of Florida has partnered with the University of Florida for a first-of-its-kind, double-degree program.

Students will be able to receive both a degree in liberal arts and science from New College and a bachelor of science degree in engineering from the University of Florida in the five-year program.

“We like the possibility because a lot of people don’t apply to New College because we don’t have an engineering option,” said Donald Colladay, a professor of physics at New College. “And there are a lot of people interested in math and science.”
