CUHK and Waseda University signed a Memorandum of Understanding that establishes a framework for the two universities to collaborate in dual degree programmes. The first programme to be launched in the academic year 2019–20 will pair the BSSc in Global Studies Programme at CUHK and the BA in Social Science—Transnational and Interdisciplinary Studies in Social Innovation at Waseda. Participating students will spend the first two years at their home institution and the last two years at the partner university as a basic course structure. Upon successful completion of the graduation requirements, students will be awarded with a Bachelor of Social Science degree from CUHK and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Waseda. Another dual degree programme with Waseda’s BA in International Liberal Studies Programme is under planning.
