JD/MA in Philosophy

This joint degree program leads to the J.D. degree and the M.A. degree in philosophy. It develops a student's understanding and appreciation of the disciplines of law and philosophy and their interrelationship. This program combines into three years and one summer session the normal three-year J.D. program offered by the School of Law and the M.A. in philosophy program offered by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. A student must be admitted by both the School of Law and the Department of Philosophy.

For more information, contact Melanie Wilson, law school, (785) 864-0359, mdwilson@ku.edu; or Dale Dorsey, philosophy, (785) 864-2139, ddorsey@ku.edu.
