Studying at a World-Class University Means You Can Combine Your Legal Education with Another Degree Program
Some of our most successful alumni are those who graduated from CWRU with a dual degree.
We offer ten dual degree programs with graduate departments and other professional schools at the University. Because of double counting of certain courses, you can usually complete a dual degree program in about a year less than it would take to complete the two degrees separately. For example, a JD/MBA dual degree program can be completed in four years whereas the JD takes three years and the MBA takes two years if they are undertaken separately.
You must apply separately to - and be admitted by - each of the programs. Most students begin at the Law School and apply for the additional degree program in the spring of their first year. Scholarships are available for both programs.
Dual degrees are offered in the following areas:
- JD/MBA (Management)
- JD/MA (Art History and Museum Studies)
- JD/MA (Legal History)
- JD/MA (Political Science)
- JD/MS (Biochemistry)
- JD/MA (Bioethics)
- JD/MSSA (Social Work)
- JD/MD (Medicine)
- JD/MPH (Public Health)
- JD/MNO (Nonprofit Organizations)
