Dual J.D./M.A. in Political Science
The dual J.D./ M.A. in Political Science allows students to complete a J.D. and and M.A. in Political Science in roughly four years, with less time and expense than would be incurred completing the two degrees separately. The dual degree is compatible with any of the tracks in the Political Science M.A. A student interested in the role law plays in American society, for instance, might follow the Public Law M.A. track, while a student interested in international law might combine the J.D. with one of the International Affairs tracks.
Graduates trained in both the law and social sciences are highly marketable in the public sector including in federal and state agencies, law enforcement, political campaigns, and public interest organizations. Graduates will be well trained for the private sector in areas such as policy development, human resources, and regulatory affairs.
