Joint Degree Program with the National University of Singapore
History majors may wish to consider applying for the Joint Degree Program, an innovative joint undergraduate degree program joining the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the National University of Singapore. Chapel Hill undergraduates spend anywhere from two to four semesters at the National University of Singapore and receive a joint bachelor of arts degree from both institutions.

Strategic Alliance With King’s College, London
The Department’s partnership with King’s College, London (KCL), which began in 2005, has evolved into one of the most ambitious and far-reaching transatlantic partnerships of its kind. The opportunity for undergraduates in an increasing number of fields to study for a semester or a year at the partner institution is now being taken up more widely.
Joint activity led by faculty members has outgrown individual initiatives to generate regular conferences, colloquia, and joint research projects resulting in publication. Graduate students benefit from short-term visits and joint Ph.D. committees. Graduate students also self-organize an annual UNC-KCL workshop, a two part-event that takes place in London and then Chapel Hill and is generously supported with funding from the Graduate School. More than twenty History majors have studied at King’s since the partnership begun, and the Department is eager to promote more undergraduate exchanges between our institutions.

KCL and UNC are members of the International Consortium of Universities for the Study of Biodiversity and the Environment (iCUBE), find out more on the iCUBE website.
