Joint MA/JD Program 

 

Earn a Master of Arts in either the Congressional and Presidential Studies (CAPS) program or the International Affairs program (MAIA) and a J.D. from the Columbus School of Law.  Twelve (12) politics credits are applied toward the J.D. and nine (9) law credits are applied toward the Master of Arts. Therefore, a student must take 21 CAPS or MAIA credits (or seven courses), plus complete the other MA requirements.   

These programs require application to and acceptance by the Columbus School of Law and the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.

Please see the Columbus School of Law for more information about the J.D. program.
