OC Announces Dual Degree Program With Japan University

Officials from Oklahoma Christian and Japan’s Ibaraki Christian University announced a new dual degree program in February. 

OC and IC are in the 40th year of mutual exchange of students and faculty, making the partnership one of the longest lasting programs between universities in Japan and the United States. 

Nearly 1,000 students have participated in the universities’ short-term and long-term programs over the past four decades.

The new program creates the opportunity for students from Japan to complete undergraduate degrees from both OC and IC. Students will attend classes at Ibraraki for two years and complete their final two years on the OC campus.

“OC is committed to giving our students the finest global education. This means developing strategic global relationships that give OC students unique learning experiences, like this partnership and the more than 20 study abroad and off-campus learning options we offer,” OC director of international programs John Osborne (91) said.
