Based on the idea of “Harmonization of Eastern and Western Cultures” espoused by Waseda University founder Okuma Shigenobu, one of the goals of the university is “co-creation of knowledge in the Asia-Pacific region”. This aims to construct greater understanding, new thoughts, and international opportunities through the exchange of people and knowledge rooted in the Asia-Pacific region. In order to realize the “co-creation of knowledge in the Asia-Pacific region,” Waseda University introduced the Double Degree Program with the cooperation of partner universities, with whom we have steadily succeeded in strengthening partnerships.
There are already many graduates who have completed this Program, and we strongly hope that this Program will contribute to producing global leaders and to promoting peace and stability throughout the world for future generations.
Waseda University’s Double Degree Program (DDP) is an educational program in which students can obtain two degrees (from Waseda and a partner university) upon their graduation from both universities. As a general rule, the program’s basic structure is based on the existing curriculum of both Waseda University and partner universities.
This site will introduce the program to those who wish to study abroad at Waseda University through the DDP.
