Seattle U Law offers several Joint Degree Programs that allow you to graduate from Seattle University with a JD and a master’s degree. This provides compelling benefits:
- Improve your marketability, career options, and earning potential with education and training in two distinct fields
- Earn two graduate-level degrees in less time than earning them separately
- Learn to bridge the gaps between law and other fields
- Expand your networking opportunities
- Pursue joint opportunities in Business, Public Administration, and Criminal Justice
The School of Law and Seattle U’s Albers School of Business and Economics offer four options to earn a joint JD-Business degree:
- You may spend your first year in either the School of Law or in the college/school/department that sponsors your second program.
- Law students who have completed their first year of legal studies may transfer up to 6 quarter credits (4 semester credits) from a specified list of approved business courses at the Albers School of Business and Economics (ASBE) toward their JD degree.
- Eligible students must have a minimum grade point average of 2.0 and must meet the prerequisite requirements for the course or receive permission from the ASBE Director of Graduate Programs.
- In order for credits to transfer, students must earn a "B" or better.
- Grades received in joint program courses will not be used to calculate law school GPA
- Pursuant to ABA rules, students cannot receive retroactive credit for courses taken prior to entering law school.
- Additional information is available from Seattle U Law’s Registrar's Office.
