New Dual PhD Program

The Dual PhD program allows students to receive a doctoral degree from Temple University and a participating partner university. The Global Programs Division of the Office of International Affairs at Temple University provides administrative coordination between degree granting departments of both institutions.
Prospective students must be accepted into each university, and must have the consent of a thesis advisor within each corresponding department. The two thesis advisors, and the designated graduate education administrators, sign an individual thesis agreement. The student is continuously registered at Temple and the partner university from the time of acceptance until the program’s completion. Doctoral students are expected to follow an outlined academic curriculum for degree completion. The total completion time may not exceed six years.
