Joint Degree ProgramsInterdisciplinary study is an integral part of academic life in the College of Law. Students who desire a greater degree of specialization may select from a number of joint degree opportunities. In a joint degree program, a student may pursue concurrently a J.D. and a related master's or doctoral degree. Formal joint degree programs exist in public administration, business administration or accounting, communications, environmental law, engineering and international relations. The college will also assist students in tailoring other joint degree programs to fit particular career objectives.

Joint degree programs are structured so students can earn both degrees in substantially less time than required to earn each degree separately. Students enrolled in a joint degree program must complete their first year of study in the College of Law. Students may apply to both programs before beginning law school, but most students elect to apply during their second semester of law school; regardless, students must apply and be admitted to both programs separately.

The College of Law is considered the primary college for law students who are enrolled in joint degree programs.
