A student in good academic standing may pursue a dual-degree program if the student is admitted both by Rutgers Law School and by another graduate or professional degree program of Rutgers University or another educational institution. We encourage all individuals interested in pursuing a dual degree to meet with the vice dean before enrolling in another graduate program. 

The list below is not exhaustive. Rutgers University offers a wide range of graduate degrees at the master's and doctoral level, and with permission of the vice dean, a law student may create a dual-degree with another graduate degree offered by Rutgers or another institution.
