Juris Doctor and Master of Arts in Anthropology
Students with approval may obtain simultaneous graduate degrees in law (JD) and anthropology (MA).
This curriculum consists of 78 credit hours of law courses including all required courses established by the College of Law, 24 credit hours (including a thesis) in the graduate anthropology program as approved by the graduate advisor in anthropology, and development of field research skills through the anthropology department's research program.
Students must consult with the J.D./M.A. in Anthropology joint-degree committee in selecting electives and must take all courses recommended by the committee. This program eliminates 16 credit hours of course work that would be required if the programs in law and anthropology were taken separately.
