Since 2001, AASCU and the China Center for International Educational Exchange (CCIEE) have been proud to offer the Sino-American 1+2+1 Dual Degree Program. This program gives Chinese undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to spend two years at an AASCU institution. Participants in the 1+2+1 program earn a dual degree from their Chinese home institution and their US host institution. Salem State has been proud to host Chinese students in undergraduate and graduate degree programs since 2005.
The 1+2+1 Dual Degree Program is the largest program of its kind. Recognized by the Chinese Ministry of Education as a Program of Excellence, it is one of most important platforms for cooperation between Chinese and American universities. Since its inception, over 135 AASCU and Chinese institutions have participated, and over 3,000 Chinese students have successfully completed the program.
The American Association for State Colleges and Universities also supports programs for US students to study and access internships in China. For more information, contact the CIE or explore the association website.
