The College of William & Mary and Scotland's oldest university plan to jointly offer an undergraduate degree program.
William & Mary officials say the program will start in the fall of 2011. It will allow students to complete two years at the Williamsburg school and two years at the University of St Andrews for a single diploma in economics, English, history and international relations.
The St Andrews William & Mary Joint Degree Programme will initially enroll 20 students at each institution for the fall 2011 semester, with an anticipated five students enrolled in each area of study.
St Andrews was founded in 1413; William & Mary was founded in 1693 and is the nation's second-oldest college.
