Joint Degrees

Joint Degrees

KU Law offers 12 degree programs in which students may simultaneously pursue a Juris Doctor and a graduate degree from a dozen other professional schools and departments at the University of Kansas. The programs allow students to condense the length of study that would be required if they were working toward the degrees separately. Students must apply separately to the law school and the companion graduate program.
