College of Arts and Sciences and Law Joint Degree Program
The Seattle University College of Arts and Sciences and School of Law joint degree program is designed to allow students interested in obtaining both the JD and a graduate degree to complete the degrees in less time than if the two degrees were obtained independently outside the program. Full-time students are able to complete the two degrees in less time because, through the program, specified courses taken in the School of Law may count toward the graduate degree and specified courses taken in the College of Arts and Sciences may count toward the JD degree.
