About

The dual B.S./M.A. program in Legal Studies and Sociology will allow you to develop both the legal preparation and sociological understanding and research skills necessary to succeed. In the program, you’ll be able to complete both your undergraduate and graduate degrees in just five years of full-time study.

While still working toward your undergraduate Legal Studies degree, you’ll enroll in four approved graduate courses in Sociology. These courses will still apply to your bachelor’s degree if for any reason you do not wish to continue at the master’s level after four years.
