Joint Degree Programs

Graduate students at CLAS may pursue two joint degree options: an MA/JD with Georgetown Law Center, and an MA/PhD with Georgetown University’s Department of Government. 

MA/JD with G.U. Law Center

Applicants to the joint MA/JD must submit two separate applications, including separate credentials (transcripts, personal statements and letters of recommendation). One complete application is submitted to the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (for the MA) and another is submitted to the Georgetown University Law Center, which has its own application requirements. Successful applicants will meet or exceed the application requirements of both programs.

MA/PhD with the Department of Government

Applicants to the joint MA/PhD in Government must submit two separate applications, including separate credentials (transcripts, personal statements, and letters of recommendation) and all required elements of each application. Applications are reviewed separately by CLAS and the Department of Government, and successful applicants will meet or exceed the requirements of both programs.
