The Joint Degree Programme between William & Mary and the University of St Andrews is one of the few international undergraduate joint degrees offered with a U.S. university. Students complete two years at each institution and earn a single degree — a Bachelor of Arts (International Honours — with the insignia of both institutions).
The Programme offers you a greater range of academic experiences than either school can offer on its own. It gives you the opportunity to experience two distinct intellectual and national cultures. Your studies will have more breadth than a traditional St Andrews degree as well as more specialization than is usual at William & Mary.

|Founded in 1693, William & Mary is one of eight "Public Ivy" universities in the United States. W&M offers a broad Liberal Arts education. Regular students at W&M spend a majority of study hours devoted to subjects outside the Major. Students at W&M take courses outside their major for all four years.
|Founded in 1413, St Andrews is Scotland's top-ranked university. The St Andrews offers less breadth in a degree characterized by increasing depth in a single discipline. In their last two years, regular St Andrews students focus exclusively on their major discipline.
