The Moore School of Business in cooperation with the University of South Carolina School of Law offers a combined degree program that permits a student to obtain the J.D. and Master of Human Resources (M.H.R.) degrees in approximately four years.
Degree Requirements M.H.R. (45 Hours) / J.D. (90 Hours)
Through the combined program, the total course load may be reduced from that required if the two degrees were earned separately since 9 hours of electives toward the J.D. may be earned in the business administration program. Students in the M.H.R./J.D. program may use up to 12 hours of employment -related law courses from the law school to fulfill requirements within the M.H.R. program. Prior to obtaining admission to the combined degree program, a student must be admitted to both the School of Law and the Moore School of Business.
