The Department of Political Science participates in the Oakland University - Wayne State University Law School 3+3 Program, which allows 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 political science, international relations, or public administration and public policy may participate.
A total of 30 credits from Wayne State University’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 program. Once admitted and on the successful completion of the first year of law school, students can apply the 30 credits from Wayne Law as elective credits toward the 124 required for the undergraduate degree. The 12-credit College of Arts & Sciences College Exploratory Requirement is waived for those who participate.
