Joint degree programs
“A cultivated mind is one to which the fountains of knowledge have been opened, and which has been taught, in any tolerable degree, to exercise its faculties”.
-John Stuart Mill, Utilitarianism, II, 1863
A dual (Joint) degree programme involves a student working for two different university degrees in parallel, either at the same institution or at different institutions, may be in different countries, completing them in less time than it would take to earn them separately. The two degrees might be in the same subject area or in two different subjects. The dual degree concept is more popular in European Union, as the gaining of qualifications from more than one country is seen as an advantage in the European labour market. India, after opening its higher education to private players, is seeing a growth in the dual degree programmes with foreign universities.
