Program Description:

A joint degree in Women’s History and Law is offered in cooperation with Pace University Law School. Students in this program earn both a Master of Arts and a Juris Doctor. By taking courses that count toward both degrees, students in the joint program can earn the M.A. and the J.D. in four years of full-time study. This program may also be completed on a part-time basis. If you are interested in the joint degree program, you must apply separately to each school. Once admitted to both, you qualify for the joint degree. Requirements for the two degrees include a total of 120 credits, 20 of which are applicable to both programs. Each school accepts up to 10 credits from the other school to satisfy requirements.
