Joint Degree Programs

The North Carolina Central University School of Law offers several programs that can lead to the award of a joint degree:

Juris Doctor / Masters of Business Administration (J.D. / M.B.A.)

Juris Doctor / Masters of Library Science (J.D. / M.L.S.)

Juris Doctor / Masters of Public Administration (J.D. / M.P.A.)

Juris Doctor / Masters of Public Policy (J.D. / M.P.P.) – with Duke University

To participate in any of the above-referenced programs, the candidate must apply and be accepted to both the School of the Law and the advanced degree program of his/her choice. Prospective joint degree students should investigate these options prior to or at the end of their first year of study at the School of Law. The lone exception is the J.D. /M.P.P. program with Duke University, where it is preferred that students complete the first year of the M.P.P. program before beginning their studies at the School of Law. Qualified candidates can typically expect to receive their joint degree in a four-year period.

For more information about any of the joint degree programs, please contact the Office of Academic Affairs at the School of Law.
