North Carolina Central University and Beijing Language and Culture University in Beijing, China, have signed a memorandum of understanding to establish a bilingual speech-language pathologist training program.
The program, through NCCU’s School of Education, is a collaboration that will focus primarily on student and faculty exchanges, joint research and educational training programs, and research contracts. Other areas of collaboration will include a dual degree program and enterprise and entrepreneurial activity. BLCU, one of fewer than 10 universities in China that offer a degree in communication disorders, has a strong research focus on culture and diversity and recently established a Research Institute for Brain Development and Communication Disorders.
“The new relationship between NCCU and Beijing Language and Culture University will give students an extraordinary opportunity to learn from two distinguished programs and ultimately provide people who need their services with uniquely trained practitioners,” said Debra Saunders-White, NCCU chancellor.

Which 10 Universities in China offering degree in CDS and are they all graduate programs?
This is such a great news! But I really wonder which "10 universities in China" offer the degree in CDS... Are they undergraduate programs or graduate? If NCCU and BLCU offer dual degree, is this degree in CDS or just in bilingual program?
