CEHS announces collaborative international education program

08 Jun 2011    

Two delegations of CEHS faculty, staff, and administrators have returned from China where they worked with university educators from across the globe.

Guangzhou was the meeting site of the first meeting, an initiative meant to finalize details of an international family studies masters degree, which will be supported through distance technology. The meeting ended with the symbolic signing of an agreement to launch the first courses in a collaborative distance education program beginning in September 2012. Four institutions, in addition to CEHS, will participate in the new degree program:

Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece
South China Normal University, Guangzhou, Peoples Republic of China
Tata Institute for Social Sciences, Mumbai, India
University of Newcastle, Callaghan, New South Wales, Australia

The second CEHS delegation visited East China Normal University in Shanghai to discuss student exchanges, faculty exchanges, collaborative research, and joint projects. CEHS members and their Chinese counterparts discussed potential projects in early childhood education, special education, math education, and science education.
