Program Overview

In order to pursue a dual degree, students must be separately admitted to both degree programs. They must then meet the qualitative requirements of both degrees and earn them simultaneously. Students must begin coursework in the second degree program prior to beginning the fifth semester of law school. Also, no coursework completed prior to official matriculation in the law school may be counted toward the JD degree.


Students accepted to the School of Law may pursue a Master of Arts in Political Science in conjunction with their JD degree. The department will waive the GRE requirement and accept the LSAT in the admissions process.
