JD 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.

JD/MBA Dual Degree Program

A dual Juris Doctor and Master of Business Administration degree program is offered jointly with the USF School of Management.

JD/Master of Public Affairs Dual Degree Program

A dual Juris Doctor and Master of Public Affairs (JD/MoPA) degree program is offered jointly with the USF College of Arts and Sciences' noted Leo T. McCarthy Center for Public Service and the Common Good.

JD/MA in Urban Affairs Dual Degree Program

A dual Juris Doctor and MA in Urban Affairs (JD/MUA) degree program is offered jointly by the USF School of Law and the USF College of Arts and Sciences' Leo T. McCarthy Center for Public Service and the Common Good.

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. The academically rigorous curriculum puts students on the job market faster while gaining the broad skills and specialized experience their careers demand.
