In 2007, the Coalition for Cultural Competency and the Department of Educational, School and Counseling Psychology and the Department of Educational Psychology and Counseling (EPC) at National Taiwan Normal University (NTNU) signed a memorandum of agreement to establish the Master’s Dual Degree Program (DDMP).

The program was developed to train future educational and counseling psychologists to live and work in an increasingly global society. DDMP was designed to promote opportunities for international education as well cross-cultural competencies. It is the first dual degree program of its kind at the graduate-school level in the counseling psychology field across the world.

Students accepted and enrolled in a master’s degree program from either department are eligible to apply for the dual degree program. Graduates who have completed at least one year of the master’s degree at the home institution and meet the graduation credit requirements of both departments, will receive dual master’s degrees from both universities.

Since 2007, thirteen qualified NTNU and 3 MU graduate students have enrolled in this program.
