Dual degree programs integrate two graduate level degrees from two schools--an MA degree from the Josef Korbel School and an MA in business, law or social work-in a reduced amount of time. Applicants must apply and gain acceptance to both schools for dual degree status. The following dual degree programs are offered through the Josef Korbel School:

This innovative and rigorous dual degree program combines a three year Juris Doctor (JD) with a full year of master's level training in international studies.
