Program Information

Degrees Offered:

JD/MA - Bioethics

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The Wake Forest University School of Law and the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences jointly offer a dual, three-and-a-half-year degree program, and (JD /MA). The program’s objective is to facilitate an interdisciplinary and comparative study of law and bioethics and to encourage students whose academic or career interests require gaining competence in both disciplines. By allowing some law courses to count as electives toward the MA degree, as well as by allowing some graduate bioethics courses to count among the elective credits permitted within the JD curriculum, students are able to earn two advanced degrees in less time than it would take to earn the two degrees separately.
