Why 2+2 Programs? * Students receive the advantages of studying abroad without any loss of time or the risk of credits not being counted. * 2+2 programs allow qualified students to transfer to University of Kentucky’s campus in their third year, thereby saving the cost of a U.S. undergraduate degree. * Students with a desire to study in another country, understand another culture, and interact with professors and students working in a different policy and problem context see many advantages of a collaborative program over an exchange or semester-abroad experience. * It allows for students to benefit from a program that draws on the teaching, curricular, and research expertise of two institutions located in two countries. * The opportunity to be part of a program that offers an undergraduate degree in a different country enhances employability prospects and career path. * Multinational companies are interested in hiring multilingual students who have studied in both countries and understand the similarities and differences in the regulatory and cultural contexts.

To China and Back: Rita Basuray, Julia Johnson, and Ernest Yanarella

During the summer of 2013, a delegation of University of Kentucky faculty had the opportunity to travel and teach abroad in China. Organized by the Confucius Institute, the trip placed 29 faculty members at the bustling Shanghai University. There, each professor was placed with a host department within the university.
 
Among those who made their way east were College of Arts and Sciences members Ernest Yanarella, chair of the Department of Political Science; visiting lecturer Dr. Rita Basuray; and Associate Professor Julia Johnson of the English department.
 
Like everyone who went on the trip, these three were presented with experiences both unique and profound that will certainly impact their teaching back home at UK.
 
In this podcast, we explore the trip through their eyes and talk about some of the moments that made the trip something they will never forget.
