Dual-Degree Programs

Students interested in pursuing a JD or MBA can enroll in our dual-degree programs to earn both their undergraduate and graduate degrees on one campus, and take fewer years to do it — five for the BA and MBA, or six for the BA and JD.

The seamless transition from the liberal arts to professional preparation helps students complete their education more quickly and accelerates their entry into a career. Why is this important? It can reduce education costs and student loan debt, for one. But it also provides grads with an extra year of earning power, as well as chances for better jobs and increased salary earlier in their careers.

Willamette’s graduate schools are an extension of the small, collaborative community found in our undergraduate programs — complete with notable faculty and numerous opportunities to turn knowledge into action. Our College of Law has produced six Oregon Supreme Court justices and a Washington state governor, and the Atkinson Graduate School of Management is the only Oregon MBA program listed among Bloomberg Businessweek’s top business schools.

College of Law

Through the BA/JD program, students can enter law school during their fourth year of undergraduate study, and finish both degrees in six years — giving them a jump start on a legal career.
