American Council on Education, Mapping International Joint and Dual Degrees: U.S. Program Profiles and Perspectives, Washington, DC, 2014. Pages: 52.
This study on international joint and dual degrees is a direct follow-on to the 2011 Mapping Survey, which gathered basic information about the prevalence and characteristics of programs offered by US institutions. Research from various sources suggests that institutions (both in the United States and worldwide) view international collaborative degree programs as a means to deepen ties with partners abroad, increase mobility and build global competence among faculty and students, and advance institutional internationalization more broadly. The survey results, along with qualitative data gathered through interviews with select respondents, provide information about institution and program characteristics and policies, academic focus areas, partner locations, and programmatic challenges, as well as how joint and dual degree programs factor into broader institutional strategy and planning.
