Dyson College of Arts and Sciences, Biology/Juris Doctor, BA/JD

A good scientist needs to be exposed to other fields of knowledge—to the arts, the social sciences, and humanities. Our Bachelor of Arts in Biology and Juris Doctor program helps you go one step further by giving you the opportunity to earn two degrees and apply your scientific expertise to the field of law. In as little as six years, you can enter this exciting field and become a leader in legal areas such as environmental and patent law.

Both the undergraduate and law degrees will offer opportunities to apply what you learn in the classroom. Our Environmental Law program is internationally recognized, and its Environmental Litigation Clinic allows students to participate in litigation relating to the environment, such as Riverkeeper, Inc., a public interest group dedicated to protecting the waters of the Hudson River System.

During your junior year of undergraduate study, you can apply separately to the School of Law.
