Joint PhD Program with Beijing International Studies University (BISU)

Binghamton University and Beijing International Studies University (BISU) signed a five-year agreement in 2015 to create a Joint PhD Program. After successfully completing the first two years of their graduate curriculum with BISU's School of Interpreting and Translation, up to ten qualified BISU students transfer into selected fields of study at Binghamton University to complete a minimum three years of required training curriculum for their doctoral degree, awarded by Binghamton University while co-administered by BIU.

The first cohort of BISU students started Doctoral Studies at Binghamton University in the Fall 0f 2017. BISU students specialize in Chinese-English, Korean-English, French-English, German-English, Spanish-English, Arabic-English, Japanese-English, and Turkish-English translation studies language pairs under the guidance and instructions of supervisors from both universities. At Binghamton University, BISU students complete 28 credits of coursework, two written comprehensive exams, a dissertation prospectus, and an oral exam to obtain ABD (All But Dissertation) status by defending the written exams and the prospectus. After becoming ABD, BISU students can return to China or remain in Binghamton to complete their dissertations.
