BBA with Business Law/BA in Economics + Catholic University School of Law

A new partnership agreement between Marymount University and The Catholic University of America Columbus School of Law (CUA Law) makes it possible for eligible students pursuing either the Business Law specialty in the B.B.A. or a B.A. in Economics to receive direct admission to CUA Law after successful completion of three years of undergraduate study.  

Interested students should meet with their advisors as soon as possible to review program requirements and fit. 
 

3 + 3 Advantage:
