    Would this degree be recognized in the USA?

    I can't think of any reason it wouldn't be.

    It'll be recognized if you explain what this school is about.
    However, there'll be some employers who will find its name kinda funny.

    Americans can be awfully provincial. Even though there's nothing wrong with universities like that, you may be better off staying closer to home. Moreover, depending on where you are the competition even for adjunct spots at community colleges can be fierce.

    Yes, but so can some of us (Canadians) This perfectly good school, Wrexham Glyndwr, was chosen for "worst university name" a while ago:

    Shakespeare wrote Owain Glyndwr into one of his plays - Henry IV Pt. 1. Under the English misspelling - Owen Glendower, of course. Saw it (Stratford Ontario) around 1958. Good production. As good, in fact, as any I saw in Stratford, England - Shakespeare's birthplace. Lovely town - nice theatre - but not as nice (or Globe-like) as the one in Stratford Ontario.

    At least in the States you can say, "It's like Bryn Mawr, except actually in Wales." :)

    Just occurred to me - an American you may well remember was in the cast of that performance I saw in Stratford Ontario in 1958. The late Jason Robards Jr. - who was a young man of about 33 then, played Hotspur. We were a high-school audience, in town for the day and Mr. Robards was kind enough to field our questions about the production, after the performance. I'm sure I wasn't the only one who became a Jason Robards Jr. fan early in his career.

    Whoa! Reminds me that I've never seen "All the President's Men" and probably should.
