International Relations

Joint and Dual Degree Programs

International joint and double degrees are collaboratively delivered by UAlberta and a partner university. Students of such programs generally graduate with either

  • Two degrees (one from UAlberta and one from the partner institution), or
  • One degree with both institutions listed on the parchment.

Joint and double degree programs provide enhanced education experiences for students and deepen UAlberta’s international presence and connections.
