San Francisco State University (SFSU) Double Degree Program
This is a special study abroad program designed for strongly motivated students who seek an exceptional multilingual and multicultural educational experience. Through an agreement between the Faculty of International Studies of Meiji Gakuin University (MGU) and San Francisco State University (SFSU) in California, you are able to earn degrees from both MGU and SFSU. You should expect to spend approximately two years studying at SFSU. Under this arrangement, you complete the courses, final exams, senior theses and other work required by both programs, and transfer credits for designated courses between the schools. If you fulfill the graduation conditions for both universities, you can earn the two degrees in approximately 4.5 to 5 years. Students who participate in this program will pay tuition rates set by SFSU. (These rates can change from year to year.)
