Program to bring sociology graduate students to University of Delaware
A delegation from the University of Delaware’s College of Arts and Sciences has visited four universities in China, signing partnership agreements to create a new exchange program for graduate students in sociology and criminal justice. During the next two summers, professors from UD will teach graduate courses in China to selected undergraduate students, who will then come to UD after graduation to complete their master’s degree work in Delaware.
The classes will be held at Xiamen University but will also include students from other partnership institutions. “Criminology and sociology are growing areas of interest in China, and many of their programs are fairly new,” Parker said. “In China, there’s also a growing interest in the study of law, behavior and the training of lawyers and judges.” Although the program will begin with about 10 Chinese students in the first two years, officials expect it to grow over time. And, Watson said, the students selected to take part will be talented and may decide to continue on to doctoral studies at UD.
