Double degree

A double degree program, sometimes called a dual degree, combined degree, conjoint degree, joint degree or double graduation program, involves a student's working for two university degrees in parallel—either at the same institution or at different institutions —and completing them in less time than it would have taken to earn them separately. The two degrees might be in two different subjects. Undergraduate double degree programs are more common in some countries than others, are found in countries whose higher education systems follow the British model. Master's double degree programs are more widespread. Interest in double degree programs between member nations has spread in the European Union, as the gaining of qualifications from more than one country is seen as an advantage in the European labour market. Typically—in a double degree program, both of the participating institutions reduce the amount of time required to be spent at each. Common undergraduate double degrees include Engineering and Economics programs and Business programs, such as Business and Computing.

They take 4–5 years to complete instead of 7–8 years to complete separate degrees. Common postgraduate double degrees are JD–MBA degrees, as well as MBA and JD degrees combined with MA fields, such as politics, urban planning, international relations. Many medical schools offer joint MD or DO degrees with JD and MBA programs, as well as with a range of MA programs; some universities offer dual PhD/MBA degrees, where the PhD portion is in science and/or engineering, to target entrepreneurs and venture capitalists. Double degrees should not be confused with double major, or with the occasional practice of awarding a further qualification with a worked-for degree, nor with the awarding of a single degree by multiple institutions. Double majors or dual majors consist of two majors attached to a single degree, as opposed to two separate degrees, each with its own field of study. In some schools, students will earn a double major when the two majors lead to the same degree name and they will earn a double degree when the two majors lead to differently-named degrees.

In general, the number of hours and required courses are more in a dual-degree program than a double major. In the United States, a dual degree program is based on a formal agreement within one college/university or between separate colleges/universities. Students spend two to three years in each degree program. After completing all requirements for both programs the student is awarded two degrees in one of the following combinations: Associate's and Bachelor's programs – an associate degree from a community college and a bachelor's degree from a partner university. One specific example of a dual bachelor's program is the 3-2 engineering program, which most takes the form of a student completing three years of study at his or her original institution a liberal arts college, going to a partnered research university for two years to complete an engineering degree; the student receives a bachelor's degree from both institutions. In Canada, Australia and—increasingly—Hong Kong, many teacher candidates study for a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Education.

These are known as “concurrent-education” programs. In India, integrated dual degree programs – bachelor's degree and master's degree in 5 years – are floated by the Indian Institutes of Technology. Dual degrees can be from the same school, or from two colleges/universities that entered a dual degree agreement. Students enter a dual degree program to accelerate their education or to enrich their professional portfolio by adding a new major. Undergraduate Brunei – UNISSAProvide a double degree for Bachelor of Law and Bachelor of Sharia Law Canada – University of Waterloo & Wilfrid Laurier UniversityOffer two double degree programs spanning both schools.

James Price Dillard

James Price Dillard is a distinguished professor of Communication Arts and Sciences Department at Penn State University. He has authored and co-authored over 50 manuscripts on the role of emotion and persuasive influence. Dillard graduated in 1976 from the University of Kansas with a Bachelor's degree in Speech Communication and Psychology. In 1978, he earned his Master's degree in Communication from Arizona State University and in 1983, he received a Ph. D. in Communication from Michigan State University. Dillard is teaching Measurement in Communication Science and Persuasive Message Processing classes at Penn State University, his awards include the NCA Golden Anniversary Award for the most outstanding, Distinguished Book Award and Social Cognition Division of the National Communication Association and many others. Dillard is most known in the academic world for his views on persuasion, his research aims to enhance understanding of the role of emotion in persuasion and interpersonal influence.

Dillard has done many studies of the use of affect in our environmental interactions. He theorizes how emotion guide our behavior in our everyday interactions. Dillard concludes that affect affects human behavior in three main ways: The primary function of affect is to guide behavior. Affect evolved. For human beings, the most important environment was the social environment. Affect evolved in the service of social interaction. Human beings strategically manage their affective states; the relative utility of these efforts can be judged only by reference to the environment. Dillard explains how affect is each one affecting the other. Affect as "phasic" acting with emotion. If someone feels fear from a stimulus they run away from that stimulus. If someone feels happiness when around a certain stimulus they would approach that stimulus, but Dillard concludes that emotions more involved than just approach and withdrawal: "If we view emotions as phasic responses to the environment, the other side of the solution is the tonic state of the organism.

Any decision as to the appropriate course of action must depend on the resources available to the organism at the time the action is required. The experiential aspect of moods can be thought of as a readout of the operating level of the organism's various biopsychological systems." "Affect enables organisms to address the challenges posed by interaction with the environment. One fundamental problem is how to acquire the resources that enable reproduction. Social life-forms have adopted a strategy for solving that problem, which depends on cooperation and role specialization." Dillard takes on a Darwinian perspective on affect: it evolved out of a need for survival. Affect might serve as the basis of communication. Communication is emotion-manifesting when it provides information about the internal state of the actor. Communication can be emotion-inducing. Dillard concludes that mood is a complex phenomenon, but it may be simplified as being either positive or negative. If a person is in a negative mood his or her reactions will be skewed towards the negative.

A negative mood assumes that resources are depleted and takes into account challenging interactions with one's environment. If a person is in a positive mood one feels he has ample resources to react to environmental stimulus. Be it a positive or a negative mood, Dillard considers this state to be a persons "tonic" state, or baseline mood; when the "phasic" and "tonic" states are combined, a reaction to stimulus is considered to be natural. "Dominance and affiliation relations are efficient means of regulating resource distribution and arguably the defining ingredients in the human experience. The communication of emotion is central to the development and modification of these structures." 1971-76 B. A. Speech Communication & Psychology. University of Kansas. 1976-78 M. A. Communication.

Ursula Mamlok

Ursula Mamlok was a German-born American composer and teacher. Mamlok was born as Ursula Meyer in Berlin, into a Jewish family, studied piano and composition with Professor Gustav Ernest and Emily Weissgerber until her family fled Nazi Germany following the nationwide pogrom in 1938. Due to American immigration quotas, the family moved to Ecuador. Ursula immigrated alone to New York City in 1940 to attend the Mannes School of Music, which had offered her full scholarship on the basis of one of her compositions, her parents followed in 1941. She became an American citizen in 1945. During four years at the Mannes School Mamlok studied under the direction of George Szell, she received a bachelor's and master's degree at the Manhattan School of Music in the 1950s, studying with Vittorio Giannini. Other teachers include Roger Sessions and Ralph Shapey in composition and Eduard Steuermann, one of the foremost piano pedagogues at the time, in performance. Though Hindemith was one of her earliest influences, Mamlok credited the works of serial composers, including Schoenberg and Webern, as having the greatest impact on her compositional style.

She said: "My music is colorful, with the background of tonality – tonal centers … I can't shake it completely." Mamlok composed extensively for small chamber ensembles of various configurations as well as works for piano. However, her output included a few pieces for orchestra, including a concerto for oboe. Other works included several songs, as well as works for chamber ensemble. Mamlok's husband, Dwight Mamlok, wrote the text for her 1987 song "Der Andreasgarten". Of her own compositional style and pieces she said: My main concern is that the music should convey the various emotions in it with clarity and conviction, it interests me to accomplish this with a minimum of material, transforming it in such multiple way so as to give the impression of ever-new ideas that are like the flowers of a plant, all related yet each one different. An influential teacher, Mamlok held many university positions including placements at: New York University, City University of New York, Temple University, Kingsborough Community College and the Manhattan School of Music, where she taught for four decades.

She served on the board of the League of Composers/International Society for Contemporary Music. Mamlok had received two National Endowment for the Arts Grants, a Fromm Foundation Grant, a Fellowship from the Guggenheim Foundation and commissions from various organizations, including the Koussevitzky Foundation, the Eastman School of Music, the Alaria Chamber Ensemble and the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra. In 1984, When Summer Sang, a chamber work for flute, violin and piano, was chosen to represent the United States at the International Rostrum of Composers. Mamlok received a Commendation of Excellence in 1987 "for her contribution to the world of concert music." The C. F. Peters Corporation, American Composers Edition, McGuinness and Marx, Casia Publishing, Hildegard Publishing companies have published Mamlok's compositions, she made. In 2006, Mamlock moved to Berlin, where she died on May 4, 2016. Alba Lucía Potes Cortés Alex Shapiro Tania León From My Garden, Sonata – Catherine Tait, violin.
