Georgia State Law offers nine dual degrees for individuals interested in doubling up to obtain a J.D. and master’s degree in selected areas. Things to know:
- Students must apply and be accepted to the College of Law using the first-year applicants process.
- You must also apply and be accepted to the other graduate school offering the dual degree you are seeking.
- In most cases, the dual-degree program allows you to complete both degrees in a shorter period of time than if you pursued both degrees separately.
- If you receive a Georgia State Law scholarship, it is available only during the years you are enrolled as a law student.
The College of Law offers eight dual-degree programs through collaborations with other Georgia State University colleges:
- Andrew Young School of Policy Studies: J.D./Master of Public Administration
- College of Arts and Sciences: J.D./Master of Arts in Philosophy
- Honors College: Bachelor/J.D.
- Robinson College of Business: J.D./M.B.A., J.D./Master of Professional Accounting; J.D./M.S.H.A. and J.D./M.B.A./M.H.A. (Master of Health Administration)
- School of Public Health: J.D./Master of Public Health
And one dual degree with the Georgia Institute of Technology:
- College of Architecture: J.D./Master of City and Regional Planning
These programs allow some selected course work in each program to satisfy requirements in the other.
Applicants must be accepted by both colleges. Interested applicants should contact the appropriate colleges for application procedures and materials.
