The combined curriculum leading to the degrees of Juris Doctor and one of three Masters programs is designed to permit the full-time student to complete both degrees over a maximum of four years instead of the five years that would normally be required to complete the two degrees separately. J.D./M.A. degrees are offered in the following fields:

The doctoral program in Urban Studies and Public Affairs integrates urban-related knowledge from a number of academic disciplines. Through disciplinary integration, doctoral students analyze, design, test, and evaluate strategies for urban policy making and management within the public and private sectors.
