Getting a dual degree is a great way to enhance the value of your legal education. The University of Denver Sturm College of Law has a number of dual degree programs, primarily offered through other University of Denver departments, that allow you to receive both a J.D. and an advanced degree in a different field.

Full-time students can usually complete both degrees in four years and may transfer 10 semester hours of approved credits toward the J.D. program. The Sturm College of Law requires that first year law students take only law classes. Please also note that you must be accepted to both programs separately. For more information on the approval process please see DU’s Graduate Degree page.

Students may also take advantage of the University of Denver’s flexible dual degree program, which allows students to link to any two graduate programs.
