Types of Collaboration

Exchange programs

Undergraduate, graduate, and faculty exchange programs each have a number of requirements and factors to consider.

Joint degrees

Joint degrees involve collaboration by an IU academic unit and a partner institution to offer a degree program that neither would have the resources to offer without combining expertise and instruction. These programs usually involve a two-way flow of students and substantial collaboration between faculty members. Upon completion of the degree program, both institutions’ names appear on the diploma.
