JOINT DEGREE PROGRAM

Joint Juris Doctor (J.D.) / Master in American Indian Studies

OU Law and the Department of Native American Studies have created an innovative interdisciplinary program of study that allows a student to earn both a J.D. and an M.A. in only three years, rather than the four years required for separate study. Through this concurrent program, graduates will be not only well-versed in law, but will achieve a broader understanding of its historical and social contexts, as well as the varieties of tribal experience, language, literature, and culture.
