Concurrent Degree Programs

The UALR Bowen School of Law offers several concurrent degree programs. The programs allow cross-credit for certain specified courses offering a savings of credit hours otherwise required for both degrees. In addition, you can:

(1) Receive an interdisciplinary education that will both diversify and specialize your training and knowledge.

(2) Build a career in either field or find a niche career combining mastery of both disciplines in a way that other professionals cannot.

(3) Broaden your network and opportunities through internships, classes and professional contacts in both programs.

If you are interested in the concurrent degree programs, we recommend that you visit with both programs before applying. You must apply for admission and be accepted by both the UALR William H. Bowen School of Law and the concurrent program to enroll in the dual degree program. The decision to seek a concurrent degree need not be made before entering law school, but must be made before completing one of the courses of study. The sooner you embark on a concurrent program, the better your opportunity to take advantage of single courses that count toward both programs.
