Economics / Law, M.A. / J.D.
The Department of Economics, in cooperation with the University of South Carolina School of Law, offers a combined degree program that permits a student to obtain both the Juris Doctor and the Master of Arts in Economics degree in approximately four years.
Degree Requirements M.A. (30 Hours) / J.D. (90 Hours)
Through the combined program the total course load may be reduced by as many as 18 credit hours from that required if the two degrees were earned separately. The student must meet admission requirements, and satisfy degree requirements, of both degree programs.
