Dual Degree Programs

Dual degree programs allow you to earn a law degree and a master’s degree simultaneously. That means you’ll build specialized expertise in a chosen field and a competitive advantage in the job market.

USF School of Law draws on the rich resources of the University of San Francisco to offer three unique dual degree programs in business, public affairs, and urban affairs. Each four-year program offers students an education that is greater than the sum of its parts, as well as time and cost savings.

For University of San Francisco undergraduates, our 3+3 Bachelor’s and Juris Doctor Law Degree program offers a unique opportunity for students to earn two degrees in six years.

My experience in the JD/MBA program has already paid dividends while working on large mergers because of my exposure to both the legal and business lenses, making it possible for me to spot more issues and communicate those to the appropriate party.
