Detroit Mercy's Accelerated 6-Year (3+3) Law Scholars Program allows students to save time and money by earning their undergraduate degree and a law degree with six years of full-time study instead of the traditional seven. As a broad overview, students spend the first three years at Detroit Mercy's McNichols Campus working on their undergraduate degree and the last three years at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law completing the Juris Doctor requirements. In the College of Liberal Arts & Education, qualifying majors are Economics, English and Political Science.

Accelerated 6-Year (3+3) Law Scholars Program for College of Liberal Arts & Education Majors

Open All | Close All

  •  

    Economics Major

    Students majoring in economics develop their analytical talents in ways that will help them apply careful reasoning skills and gain a unique perspective on human behavior. These skills aid in helping predict the effects of particular rules, explain why certain rules exist and analyze whether they should exist.

  •  

    English Major

    The study of English allows students to develop the ability to read and analyze texts that are complex and sophisticated, many of which deal with legal topics. Students majoring in English generally score higher on the GRE, LSAT, MCAT exams and earn higher scores on the GMAT exams than undergraduate business majors.

  •  

    Political Science Major

    Completing undergraduate work in political science provides a foundation for research and analytical skills, and greatly helps students better understand the context of law, the systems that surround it and leadership within public service.
