Students who wish to complement their law degrees with advanced degrees in other fields will find numerous opportunities at the University of Georgia. With 17 other schools and colleges at the university, advanced degree opportunities abound. An interest in international relations may lead to a master's in international affairs. Students with accounting backgrounds may pursue a M.Acc. in the School of Accounting.
While the first year of study at Georgia Law consists of mainly required courses, the second and third-year curriculum is highly flexible. In some instances, students have already completed a year of study in another degree program before enrolling in the law school. Then, after finishing the first year of law school, both degrees are completed over the next two or three years. Some common concurrent degree areas pursued with a J.D. are:
International Affairs (Department of International Affairs in the School of Public and International Affairs)
Environmental Science (College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences)
Students interested in concurrent degree programs should contact the graduate coordinator in the department, school of college offering the degree, in addition to the law school. Further information about graduate studies is available from the Graduate School.
