     The Department of German at Wenzao signed a partnership agreement with the Department of Business Language German and Tourism Management at Hochschule Konstanz University of Applied Sciences in Germany to offer a dual degree program in the 2014 academic year. The Department of German at Wenzao is the first department of German in Taiwan to partner with a university in Germany for a dual degree program. It sets a good example for fulfilling the goal of cultivating cross-disciplinary students with bilingual skills. Wenzao has been sending students to Hochschule Konstanz University of Applied Sciences for other disciplines through a screening process every year since the 2015 academic year. Yu-Wen Li is the first student of the dual degree program. She has already met the graduation requirements of both universities this year and successfully received two bachelor’s degrees.
 
  Yu-Wen Li indicated that the application procedure of the dual degree program provided by Wenzao is much simpler than the individual application procedure for studying abroad. It creates a great opportunity for students to achieve the dream of studying overseas. In addition, two bachelor’s degrees will be awarded simultaneously after 5 years of study and it is possible to continue to pursue a master’s degree in Germany. Li also said that students studying abroad will be more open-minded to different cultures, in addition to improving their foreign language skills and developing independence and problem-solving skills.   
 
 The Department of German has already sent nine outstanding students to study in Hochschule Konstanz University of Applied Sciences since the 2015 academic year. Eight students from the Department of German at Wenzao have enrolled in Hochschule Konstanz University of Applied Sciences in the 2018 academic year, and they will go to Germany this September. Thanks to the dual degree program, students from Wenzao can study in the Department of Business Language German and Tourism Management at Hochschule Konstanz University of Applied Sciences without paying local tuition. Professional courses on business and management include Business German and Trade, Tourism Management, Internship, Cross-Culture Communication, etc. Students have the opportunity to interact with other students from Asia and Europe during their stay in Germany. They can choose to pursue further education or seek a job in Germany after graduation to enjoy a life beyond their wildest dreams.
