Columbia University and Trinity College Dublin launch Dual BA Programme in India

Upon completion of the four-year programme, graduates earn two bachelor's degrees, one from each institution. 

Trinity College Dublin, the University of Dublin, and Columbia University in the City of New York have jointly launched the Dual BA Programme in India. The programme transcends traditional study-abroad opportunities by offering Indian students a chance to pursue a rigorous UG liberal arts education spanning two continents.

Upon completion of the four-year programme, graduates earn two bachelor's degrees, one from each institution. Students spend their initial two years at Trinity College Dublin, after which they matriculate at Columbia, completing one of several approved majors and the university’s core curriculum in years three and four.

Nilanjana Shihn, Country Adviser India at Trinity College, said, "Indian students have proved their mettle in universities and careers across the world. I am proud to launch this important new programme in India which was earlier launched in New York in the month of February."

Jessica Sarles-Dinsick, Associate Dean for International Programs and Special Projects at the Columbia University School of General Studies, stated, "We at Columbia are very excited about this new programme, and that we are Trinity’s first international dual degree partner at the undergraduate level. There has been tremendous enthusiasm among both faculty and students for the programme, which demonstrates how well-aligned both institutions are for a partnership of this kind."

Zuleika Rodgers, the Programme Director of the Dual BA at Trinity College Dublin, added, "Trinity College Dublin is delighted to partner with Columbia University, one of America’s leading universities, to deliver this groundbreaking programme. Together, both institutions draw on both the traditional and innovative, encouraging students to challenge themselves and develop an understanding of an increasingly globalised world. This programme provides a truly international educational experience for our students."
