China Dual Degree Program

Overview

The Department offers a dual Bachelor's-Master's degree program in both Sociology and Criminology to undergraduate students matriculated at UD's partner universities in China. The primary goal of the program is to cultivate the next generation of Chinese sociologists and criminologists through rigorous and systematic training in theory and research methodology.  By having UD faculty available to lecture on a Chinese campus during summer breaks, Chinese students are able to complete their master degrees in a more expeditious and affordable way.       

Program Features

  • Students can earn both a bachelor's and master's degree in 5 years.
  • Possible tuition waiver is awarded on a competitive basis.
  • The GRE requirement is waived.
  • Admitted students take courses offered by UD faculty during the summer of their junior and senior years on a Chinese campus.
  • Admitted students complete their second year of study and degree on the UD campus.
  • After completing the master's degree, students can apply for doctoral programs in sociology/criminology or other disciplines in the U.S. 

Participating Universities

Currently, five academic units in four Chinese universities are participating in the program (see below).  The Department is expected to sign more agreements with Chinese universities during the 2017-2018 semester year.     

  • Southwest University of Finance and Economic
