Students of the Social Work and Law program from The Catholic University of America are able to earn both degrees in approximately four years, rather than five years, because some credits are shared by both programs. Students are assigned faculty advisers within each school. Applicants for admission to the dual-degree program must meet the separate admissions requirements of each school and must be accepted by each school independently.
In total, the dual degree program requires a minimum of 123 credits to fulfill both schools requirements. Students should note that by receiving some credit for some advanced year coursework from both schools, that the number of electives in both programs is reduced and therefore, depending on a particular student's area of interest, students may elect to complete more than 123 credits in the program to further focus their studies. Advisors from both schools work with dual degree students to craft plans that ensure preparation for both professional exams and practice.
