Is acceptance to either program contingent on acceptance to the other?
Do joint/concurrent degree program grades appear on the Georgetown Law transcript?
How do the joint degree programs work together?
Through the integration of the curricula of the two schools, enrolled students are able to earn degrees in an accelerated program, instead of the time normally required when completing the degrees separately. Georgetown Law has designed these programs to allow students to earn two degrees in a condensed time frame by offering reciprocal credit for coursework. (Completion time varies by program and whether the student is attending part-time or full-time.)
How does attending the part-time program affect the joint degree process?
Please check with each individual program for timing requirements. The J.D./M.A.S.S.P., J.D./M.A.L.A.S., J.D./M.A.R.E.E.S., J.D./Ph.D. in Government, Joint J.D./LL.M. in IBEL, Joint J.D./LL.M. in National Security Law, Joint J.D./LL.M. in Securities, and Joint J.D./LL.M. in Taxation programs offer a full-time program and part-time evening program. The J.D./M.P.H. (with Johns Hopkins), J.D./M.P.P., J.D./M.S.F.S., J.D./M.A.A.S., J.D./M.B.A., and J.D./M.A.G.E.S. are full-time programs only. Students pursuing the JD/Philosophy degree may take the J.D. program on a full- or part-time basis.
If I am not enrolled in a joint degree program, may I still take graduate courses at another school?
Students are allowed to transfer a maximum of 6 credits from another graduate degree program. The Office of J.D. Academic Services can advise on the feasibility of pursuing a concurrent degree.
