by Aubé, Jeffrey; Reiser, Oliver; Gawley, Robert E.; James, Paraic

With funding from the US Department of Education and the European Commission, a transatlantic dual BS degree program has been established within the Atlantis program. US students spend one semester at Dublin City University and one semester at the University of Regensburg. European students spend one year at a US institution, either KU or UA. Upon completion of the program, students receive BS degrees from the US institution and a European institution. Student exchange, faculty exchange with joint course teaching, Web based teaching, and jointly supervised research of undergraduates culminating in their Bachelor thesis are key elements of the program. The details of how this program works including course recognition and credit transfer will be presented.
