In the joint JD-MA program offered by the Department of Catholic Studies and the St. Thomas School of Law, students earn two graduate degrees (in Law and Catholic Studies, respectively; a total of 97 credits), in less time than it would take to earn the two degrees separately. Full-time students can expect to complete the joint program in three and one-half to four years of study. Students must apply for each program separately and meet all admissions requirements in both Law and Catholic Studies. Students typically enroll in the School of Law before applying for the Master of Arts degree in Catholic Studies.
