The M.A./J.D. Joint Degree Program

Admission to the Columbus School of Law at CUA is a prerequisite for admission to the M.A./J.D. joint degree program. A student would ordinarily apply to the joint degree program at the end of his/her first year of law school. Completion of the joint degree requires an additional year of coursework beyond the J.D., and permits certain courses to be counted toward both degrees. Interested applicants should communicate directly with the Chair of the Department of History.
