Abstract

The Benjamin Franklin Scholars Program, a dual degree program offered by the Colleges of Engineering and Humanities and Social Sciences (CHASS) at North Carolina State University, is discussed. Students in the program earn Bachelor of science in the field of engineering or computer science, and a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science in the humanities, social sciences, or any interdisciplinary major offered by CHASS. The program aims to educate young men and women, and make them equally prepared to deal with the technical and societal contexts of the challenges being faced by humankind in the twenty-first century. A detail account on the curriculum and course offering, and co-curricular activities to be accompanied with the program is presented.
