B.A./J.D. Dual-Degree Program

Highly talented and qualified students have the opportunity to complete both a bachelor of arts (B.A.) degree and a juris doctor (J.D.) degree in six years rather than seven through the B.A./J.D. dual-degree program, a joint endeavor of Camden College of Arts and Sciences and Rutgers Law School in Camden.

This program provides the opportunity for dual B.A./J.D. students to complete all general education requirements and all requirements for a major in the Camden College of Arts and Sciences in three years. Dual-degree candidates must perform sufficiently well to be able to participate in the Honors College. If determined to be qualified, they then enter the Rutgers Law School. Credits earned during the students' required first-year law courses shall be deemed to complete the students' requirements for a B.A. degree, provided that the students have earned at least 92 credits in the Camden College of Arts and Sciences prior to matriculation at the law school. The students will receive their B.A. degree upon successful completion of all first-year law courses, normally at the end of their fourth year of study, and dual-degree students shall be eligible to participate in the Camden College of Arts and Science's graduation ceremonies at the end of their fourth year.

Students selected for this program will need rigorous advising so that they successfully meet the Camden College of Arts and Sciences' graduation requirements and Rutgers Law School's entry requirements. The Honors College director and the prelaw adviser for the Camden College of Arts and Sciences will serve as the primary points of contact with the students during their first three years; however, students must also be sure to meet the requirements of their academic major. Dual-degree candidates must be accepted into and participate fully in the special prelaw advisory program for dual-degree candidates and must be recommended for continuation in the dual-degree program by the program's coordinator.


For further information, contact Professor Timothy Martin (, the coordinator for the B.A./J.D. program for the Camden College of Arts and Sciences. Honors College students should meet with the director to discuss this opportunity.

The prelaw adviser for the Camden College of Arts and Sciences is Professor Kirsten Nussbaumer (
