Political Science / 3+3 Law Program

Political Science 3 Plus 3

Partnership with Campbell Law School

Through the 3+3 Law Program, qualified Meredith students can earn an undergraduate degree from Meredith College and a J.D. from Campbell Law School in just six years, saving both time and money.

Why Pursue the 3+3 Law Program at Meredith?

  • Our students have a strong history of success with Campbell Law and are often awarded scholarships
  • There is a vast network of Meredith alumnae who are practicing lawyers or students in law school who want to help you succeed
  • Meredith and Campbell Law both have small class sizes and supportive faculty
  • Both schools offer an ideal location in the heart of North Carolina’s capital city
  • You can choose from a variety of majors including political science, history, English, economics, communication, and even chemistry and public health
  • A women’s college setting is known to enhance confidence and develop strong leadership and communication skills – all of which will serve you well in a competitive law school environment

How it Works
Spend three years at Meredith College, completing all general education requirements and the coursework for your major. In your fourth year, begin study at Campbell Law, and the credits earned during this year will complete your Meredith degree while counting toward your law degree. You can continue to live on campus at Meredith during this fourth year.

Program Requirements

  • You would need to take an average of 17 credits a semester and declare your major by the beginning of your second year in order to complete the program on time.
  • While there is no guarantee of admission to Campbell Law, Meredith students traditionally have done well at Campbell Law given the similarities between the two schools and the excellent preparation students receive.
