BA in Philosophy/Juris Doctor Texas A&M University



Course info


A Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy has long been acknowledged as an excellent preparation for law school. The critical thinking, argumentation, reading and writing skills that are cultivated in Philosophy are crucial to success in the study and practice of law. The dual degree program allows students to complete both the BA and the JD in 6 years by double-counting 18 hours of coursework.

Students in the dual degree program spend their first three years on the main campus in College Station. In these three years, they complete 102 hours of coursework in the College of Liberal Arts. Students formally apply to the School of Law during their Junior year. Continuation in the dual degree program is contingent on admission to the School of Law.

In year 4, students begin studying on the campus in Fort Worth. They take the traditional lock-step coursework required of first-year law students. This includes 29 hours of coursework, 18 of which will be double-counted so as to complete the requirements of the BA. In years 5 and 6, students complete the School of Law’s requirements for the JD (an additional 61 credit hours).
