Chemical Engineering with other strong programs?

<p>Does anyone know any colleges with strong Psychology (specifically Social Psychology) and/or US History programs in addition to a top class Chem. Engineering program?</p>

<p>I hear Stanford fills in both of those nicely, but of course, getting in would be difficult.</p>

<p>Any other places?</p>

<p>I would look at the flagship state universities with strong chemical engineering programs such as Minnesota, Wisconsin, Cal Berkeley, or Texas (there are more). These types of schools generally have very credible programs in the social sciences and humanities. If you are the kind of student that has a realistic shot at Stanford, then you could also consider some of the Ivies that have stronger engineering programs such as Princeton, Columbia, or Cornell. Again, they will all have good social science/humanities programs.</p>

<p>U Minnesota is truly top-notch in both ChE and psych and has a good history department too.</p>

<p>I've got a feasible shot at HYPSM level colleges, so I'll look more in depth at those.</p>

<p>U Minnesota sounds pretty interesting, but I don't know too much about it; I'll look into it, and the other colleges too.</p>

<p>It sounds like most of the strong ChE programs are also pretty good at the humanities like Psych as well?</p>

<p>Try *Princeton ChE * with History/Psychology</p>

<p>all three departments ranked in top 10</p>

<p>ChE - 6
History - 1
Psychology - 8</p>

<p>You should realize, however, that with a ChE major you are going to have very little room for a significant amount of free electives</p>

<p>note, for stanford:</p>

<p>ChE - 5
History - 1
Psychology - 1</p>

<p>for UC Berkeley</p>

<p>ChE - 2
History - 1
Psychology 1</p>

<p>How are Berkeley and Stanford both ranked at 1 in History and Psych? o.O</p>

<p>I don't mind not having many free electives, really; I know ChE is what I want to do.</p>

<p>you can have several colleges tied for the top sport in a department</p>

<p>5thEagle, if you don't mind not having many free electives then there is no need to have a good History and Psychology department because you would not have the opportunity to take many classes in these area anyway.</p>

<p>I have a BA in History from the U of MN. The History department their is awesome.</p>

<p>5thEagle, a present for you:</p>

<p><a href="http://www.princeton.edu/che/undergrad/Undergrad_Handbook.pdf%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://www.princeton.edu/che/undergrad/Undergrad_Handbook.pdf&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>you might find some stuff in there helpful, including the fact that you will only have 2 free electives during your 4 years of undersgraduate.</p>

<p>Also I am curious as to what your specific plans are. Are you trying to double major in Chem E and History/Psych? Or just pick up a minor? </p>

<p>Here's a little warning about the University of Minnesota. If you're doing both programs you're going to have to walk across the Mississippi river a lot. Chem E is on the East Bank and History is on the West Bank. Weather conditions are extreme throughout the academic year.</p>

<p>I'm thinking either double major ChE and History/Psych or major ChE and minor History/Psych. I don't mind sticking around another year or so if needed.</p>

<p>Thanks for the link, I'll be sure to read it over.</p>

<p>5thEagle, a fifth year it will be</p>

<p>good luck</p>

<p>Right now you don't mind. You might get antsy when you're there.</p>

<p>Hopefully nothing changes. I'll keep picking around, thanks everyone.</p>
