Rutgers, as the principal public research university of New Jersey, offers graduate and professional degree programs in virtually every major academic discipline, and the law faculty encourages interdisciplinary study offered by other graduate units of the University that is coordinated with the Juris Doctor program. At present, the following formal dual degree (or joint degree, as they are sometimes referred to) programs have been approved:
Moreover, it is possible, on a case-by-case basis, to coordinate a dual degree program of study with many of the more than 100 graduate degree programs offered by Rutgers at the masters or doctoral level.
Applicants interested in a dual degree must apply to the other graduate program separately and comply with their admissions procedures which may include taking the GRE, GMAT, or MCAT, depending on the requirements of the other program. Questions about pursuing a dual degree should be directed to the Admissions Office at 973-353-5554 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students who do not seek another graduate degree may nevertheless enroll in other graduate level courses in subjects related to law and transfer up to six credits to the Juris Doctor degree.
