The Journalism School and the School of Law offer a joint MSJ and JD degree program that combines three and one-half years of full-time study for the Master of Science (M.S.) in Journalism and the Juris Doctor (J.D.). The joint degree program in journalism and law is designed to offer students academic grounding in both disciplines to prepare them for the professional practice of journalism, law or a combination of media law.
