Joint Degree Programs

17% of the Class of 2014 (46 students) graduated with joint degrees – across 11 different disciplines.

As one of the world’s great research institutions, the University of Pennsylvania is home to an array of superb graduate and professional schools – all within walking distance of the Law School. The Penn approach to education is the integration of knowledge across disciplines and so it is no surprise that many Penn Law students earn joint or dual degrees, or simply take up to four classes as part of their JD.

Students interested in earning a concurrent degree should apply separately to that program or school and, in most cases, can apply to that second program either contemporaneously with their application to Penn Law or while in their 1L or 2L year. Because Penn Law and the sister school grant credit for a certain number of the other school’s courses, students typically save one year by pursuing both programs concurrently. Students who earn a joint degree or certificate will incur an administrative fee.
