Interdisciplinary Study and Dual Degree Programs
Michigan Law offers a wide variety of graduate degree programs that students may wish to pursue concurrently with the study of law. To receive information and appropriate credit, students enrolled in such programs must register their names with the Office of the Registrar. Dual program students are also strongly encouraged to meet with the Assistant Dean for Student Life to discuss their academic program.
Law students who are interested in concurrent degree programs should contact the other department to learn of its administrative procedures, as the Law School and other departments make separate and independent decisions concerning admission and degree requirements. Students must apply, and be admitted to, each school separately. Law students may gain admission to most of these programs during their first year of legal study, although a few require that an application be submitted prior to matriculation in either school. Further information about dual degrees may be found here. Materials describing all of these joint degree programs also are available in the information rack outside 313 Hutchins Hall.
In addition to these programs, concurrent degree programs can be arranged on an individual basis by law students. The Law School administration is pleased to assist students with the pursuit of concurrent degrees.
