Dual Degree

Vanderbilt Law School offers a range of dual-degree programs in conjunction with other graduate schools at Vanderbilt University.

Customized Dual Degree Program

Students who wish to pursue a dual-degree program with a graduate program with which the law school has no formal  arrangements can propose a customized dual-degree program. In all cases, prospective students must seek and gain acceptance to both the law school and the other graduate program. Decisions regarding admission to the law school and the graduate program are made independently.

Program Format

Prospective students must apply separately to and be admitted to each school separately. Financial aid is awarded and administered by each school independently. The exception is the Ph.D. in Law & Economics, which has a unified admission process and where students receive full fellowship support covering full tuition and stipend for both degrees, and while J.D./M.S.F. students apply for admission to each program separately, scholarship aid may be available from the law school during the semester of enrollment at the business school.
