Earn degrees in six years
MURRAY, Ky. (April 27, 2017) — Murray State University has announced a partnership with the University of Louisville to offer an accelerated degree program where students can earn an undergraduate degree as well as a law degree in just six years.
“This partnership is a great step forward for providing our students with an accelerated pathway in furthering their academic pursuits,” said Staci Stone, interim dean of Murray State University’s College of Humanities and Fine Arts. “Our recruiting efforts will be strengthened as well, allowing us to offer this innovative program to prospective students interested in law school.”
As part of UofL’s Brandeis School of Law 3+3 Accelerated Law Program, Murray State undergraduate students majoring in political science while meeting qualifications could apply and enroll for law school admission through the UofL, making their senior year also count as their first year of law school. The fast-track curriculum means students will have one less year of coursework, tuition and expenses.
“We want to help students jump-start their legal education,” said UofL Brandeis Law Dean Susan Duncan. “We’re thrilled to have Murray State as a partner and to know we are doing our part to help college students reduce costs and begin their legal careers more quickly.”
