Concurrent Degrees

The School of Law offers dual degree programs in conjunction with the university's graduate schools. These dual degrees offer the concurrent pursuit of a JD degree along with a Master of Business Administration (MBA), Master of Arts in International Relations (MAIR), and Master of Arts in Peace and Justice (MAPJ).  Since these programs allow the concurrent pursuit of two degrees, with some courses credited to both a JD degree and a master's degree, students can generally save one semester of time and expense. With proper planning, each dual degree program takes approximately four years to complete. 

Students interested in dual degree programs must apply to and be accepted by both schools. Students generally begin at the School of Law, and start their master's program in their second year. No matter which program a student starts with, graduate school credits may not be transferred to the law school until completion of the entire first year of law study is completed.

If you are a current law student and are interested in any of these dual degree options, please contact Director for Law Student Affairs Irene Meloney at
