Introduction of the Program
As part of a joint agreement between the China Center for International Educational Exchange (CCIEE) and the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) the International Office at ESU is proud to be part of the jointly initiated Sino-American 1+2+1 Dual-Degree Program. The program is focused on providing credit and degree recognition between Chinese and American Universities.
About the 1+2+1 Program
The 1+2+1 Program, organized and administrated by CEAIE, CCIEE and AASCU, is an international educational cooperation focused on two-way student and faculty exchanges between Chinese and American universities. There have been over 105 universities (85 Chinese universities and 20 American universities) that have participated in this program.
The 1+2+1 Program covers both undergraduate and graduate studies:
Undergraduate study: Freshmen are selected from Chinese partner universities to spend their second and third year at one of the U.S. partner universities. They return to their home universities for the fourth year to complete the program for both universities. Qualified students will receive diplomas and bachelor degrees from both Chinese and U.S. universities.
Graduate study: First-year graduate students are selected from Chinese partner universities to spend two or three semesters in the U.S. partner universities. They return to their home universities and finish their required courses and dissertation. Qualified students will receive diplomas and master degrees from both Chinese and U.S. universities.
