Dual Degree Programs

Dual Admission Honors Law (B.S./J.D.)

Students interested in pursuing law school can apply for admission to both a social sciences bachelor's program (social and economic development policy or global studies) and Illinois Tech's Chicago-Kent College of Law prior to their freshman year through the Dual Admission Honors Law program. Admission to Chicago-Kent is contingent on the following factors:

  • Maintaining the character and fitness required by the bar examining authorities
  • Taking the LSAT exam
  • Completing a law school application
  • Completing all undergraduate course requirements

Students in this program will complete their B.S. and J.D. degrees in six years rather than the usual seven years.

Bachelor of Science in Social and Economic Development Policy and Master of Public Administration (B.S./M.P.A)

Social and economic development policy majors can complete this combined B.S. and M.P.A. program in five years. Any time after the fourth semester, students may request admission to the Master of Public Administration program offered by Illinois Tech’s Stuart School of Business. Students who are granted provisional admission may then take one M.P.A. course per semester which is counted toward both their B.S.  and M.P.A. programs. Final admission to the M.P.A. is made during the eighth semester. The B.S. degree is awarded at the end of the eighth semester, and the M.P.A. degree is completed during the fifth year.
