What are Double Degree Programs

The Double Degree Program provides the longest stay at an overseas university of any Off-campus Study Program. Formal enrollment at two universities enable you to study under both the APU and host university curriculums. Not only is receiving degrees from two universities a noteworthy achievement, but studying two educational systems endows students with qualities such as diverse perspectives and critical thinking.
