JOINT DEGREE PROGRAM – Joint Juris Doctor (J.D.)/Master of International Area Studies (M.A.I.S.))

The joint J.D. and Master of Arts in International Studies is an accelerated program that exposes students interested in law to political, economic and cultural courses designed to enrich their future international law practice. Persons interested in pursuing the dual J.D./M.A.I.S program must make regular application for admission to be accepted by both the College of Law and the Graduate College. Applicants should apply to M.A.I.S. during the second semester of their first year of law school, by Feb. 15, to begin the following fall semester.

Nine hours of the elective credit will count toward both J.D. and M.A. requirements, allowing the opportunity to combine into four years of study both the three-year J.D. program offered by the College of Law and the two-year M.A.I.S offered by the College of International Studies.
