The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa’s School of Architecture has implemented a dual degree with Tongji University in Shanghai, China.

The new Global Track China Focus will provide students with the opportunity to study in Hawaiʻi and China. Architecture students also have the option to receive a National Board of Architectural Accreditation accredited master of architecture from Tongji University and a National Architectural Accrediting Board accredited doctor of architecture from Mānoa.

With the United States and China representing the two largest construction economies in the world, this track offers students unprecedented advantages. No other institutional partnership in the world offers accredited professional architectural degrees in the world’s two largest construction economies–the U.S. and China. Learn more.
