New 3+3 Program for Clark Honors College Students

academic_opportunitiesThe University of Oregon School of Law and the Robert D. Clark Honors College are announcing a new program that lets students earn both an undergraduate and law degree in six years.

The 3+3 Program is an accelerated curriculum for students who want to shave a year off the seven years it typically takes to complete both a law and bachelor’s degree. It’s designed to streamline the career path for students in the Clark Honors College interested in the legal field.

Students participating in the program will spend their first three years enrolled in undergraduate courses fulfilling their honors college general education requirements as well as the requirements of their chosen majors and minors.

During the students’ third year, they must take the Law School Admission Test and apply for admission to the law school. The application fee will be waived for students in the 3+3 program.

Upon admission, students begin law school courses in their fourth year, in conjunction with their honors college thesis and thesis defense. Credits earned in the first year of law school will apply to a bachelor’s degree as elective credits, which fulfill the necessary requirements to participate in honors college graduation ceremonies.

Current sophomores and freshmen enrolled in the Clark Honors College are encouraged to learn more about the program this Wednesday, April 13, from 9-10 a.m. in the Knight Library Browsing Room. The event will also be live-tweeted, following @Oregon_Law on Twitter and the hashtag #CHC2Law.

More information about the 3+3 program can be found at Around the O!
