NC Central, China sign agreement for program

Posted: Updated:
DURHAM, N.C. -

N.C. Central University and Beijing Language and Culture University in China have signed an agreement to begin a bilingual speech language pathologist training program.

The program operates through NCCU's School of Education. It's a collaboration with both universities that would primarily focus on student and faculty exchanges, joint research and educational training programs, and research contracts.

Other areas of collaboration include a dual degree program, as well as enterprise and entrepreneurial activity. The Beijing school is one of less than 10 universities in China that currently offers a degree in communication disorders.

Established in 1967, NCCU's Communication Disorders program trains students to become speech-language pathologists who prevent, assess and manage human communication disorders from infants to the elderly.
