JD/MS/MA Programs

Barclay College of Law and the Graduate School offer combined degree programs leading to Juris Doctor (JD) and MS/MA Programs. . These programs offer the opportunity for students to simultaneously complete the JD degree and a second degree from the Graduate School in three years. The second degree may be obtained from the department of Arts and Sciences, Department of Education and Human Development, or the Department of Health Sciences and Technology. The program is structured so that students can earn both degrees simultaneously in approximately three academic years. Degrees are awarded when the required course work in both areas is completed. The program is for highly motivated Students. Students are required to work closely with their advisers.


Cavalla International University accelerated program offers four academic semesters in a calendar year without breaks. Therefore, students in the combined degree program can complete the entire program in about four years. During the first two years students will enroll in the Juris Doctor program and the remaining two years for the PhD program.

Note: Enrollment in this program is limited to very few students each year.
