Masters in International Studies
The JD/MA in International Studies with the College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences provides you with knowledge of the political, economic and cultural environment in which international law is developing. Structured around international political economy and global culture, the program is particularly appropriate for law students with strong foreign language or social science backgrounds who wish to pursue careers as international legal specialists.
Traditional international studies students must complete 48 credit hours to receive the MA degree. However, under the joint degree program, you are required to complete a minimum of 32 credit hours. The Graduate College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences will accept up to 16 hours of credit for work completed in the College of Law.
In addition to the core requirements, specific courses are required for the various international studies concentrations. Please visit the International Studies website for complete program requirements.
