The 3+3 cooperative program with the School of Law of the University of Missouri is for exceptional students. Such students complete three years of study at Central Methodist University, fulfilling general education requirements for the bachelors degree and admission requirements to the School of Law, then apply for admission to the University of Missouri. After three years of study there, and the completion of requirements for the degree of Doctor of Jurisprudence, the student will be awarded both the baccalaureate degree and the professional degree. (Note that the University of Missouri suggests that students obtain their bachelors degree prior to entering the Law School.) Please consult with the Director of the Pre-law Program, Dr. John Carter, for further information.
