The School of Journalism and Mass Communication, in cooperation with the Drake Law School, offers exceptional students the opportunity to accelerate completion of their undergraduate major and begin study in Drake Law School, completing both degrees in a 3+3 or 6-year program.
Because the program requires careful scheduling, admission is limited to first-year students whose academic potential suggests they can successfully complete both B.A. and J.D. requirements in six years.
Interested students should apply to the SJMC director for admission to the program no later than their first semester at Drake. Admission also is considered for high school seniors who already have been admitted to the University.
Thirty-one to 35 credits must be completed in a SJMC sequence. All SJMC students complete 5 required classes:
