The study and practice of law is increasingly interdisciplinary, and many Duke Law students and faculty are interested in the ways that matters of law and policy intersect with other fields, including economics, political science, engineering, and environmental science. At Duke, they have the opportunity to engage with leading scholars and students in these other fields in a variety of ways. Many students elect to take a course or two from another department for credit towards their JD. Others with a deeper interdisciplinary interest choose to complete a dual degree program combining their JD with an MA or MS in another discipline.
The format of the JD/MA and JD/MS dual degree programs is currently being restructured. Please check back later for additional information about how to apply to an MA or MS program after you have enrolled as a law student at Duke.
