Learn More About FDU's Dos Mundos Unidos Program
Open House in February
Teaneck, NJ (January 29, 2007) Students interested in a unique global program where half the course work is done in the Dominican Republic at Pontificia Católica Madre y Maestra University (PUCMM) in Santiago de los Caballeros and two years at Fairleigh Dickinson University (FDU) in Teaneck, New Jersey, are invited to learn more about this new program during the month of February.
The program, Dos Mundos Unidos, is open to all qualified high school graduates and offers students the opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Arts in Individualized Studies from Fairleigh Dickinson, with half the course work done at FDU and half in the Dominican Republic. During the freshman and senior years, students study at Fairleigh Dickinson’s Metropolitan Campus in Teaneck, NJ. The sophomore and junior years will be spent at PUCMM.
On February 28, FDU interested students and their parents are invited to a Dos Mundos Unidos Open House from 6-9 p.m. in Dickinson Hall, University Plaza Drive, Hackensack, NJ. Representatives from the Office of Global Partnerships will be available to answer questions and provide information to potential students and their parents. Throughout February, Liz Nigrinis in the Office of Global Partnerships, is available to answer questions about the program in English and Spanish at (201)692-2392.
As part of the degree program, students earn a concentration in Latin American studies, complementing their chosen area of study and providing them with the global perspective needed to be successful. In September 2007, students will be able to start their studies in the academic areas of business, hotel, restaurant and tourism management, electrical engineering, information technology and business, communications and technology.
Directions to the campus are available on line at www.fdu.edu or by calling Ms. Nigrinis at the above number. She is also happy to arrange individual campus visits.
