Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs

The Department of Sociology, Anthropology, Social Work and Criminal Justice participates in the Oakland University - Wayne State University Law School 3+3 Program and the Oakland University - University of Detroit Mercy 3+3 programs, which allow students the opportunity to earn an undergraduate degree (B.A. or B.S.) and a law degree (J.D.) in a minimum of 6 years. Students majoring in sociology, anthropology, sociology/anthropology, and criminal justice may participate.

Up to 30 credits from Wayne State University’s Law School or University of Detroit Mercy’s Law School will be counted toward the undergraduate degree for one of these majors. Students must complete the coursework as specified by the major, along with the university’s General Education Requirements , and then can apply to the Wayne Law or UDM Law program once admitted. On the successful completion of the first year of law school, students can apply the 30 credits from Wayne Law or UMD Law as elective credits toward the 124 required for the undergraduate degree. The 12-credit College of Arts and Sciences exploratory requirement is waived for those who participate.

Students interested in this opportunity should contact their academic adviser in the First Year Advising Center, the College of Arts and Sciences Advising Office, or the Department of Sociology, Anthropology, Social Work and Criminal Justice faculty advisers.
