The College of Law and the Department of Urban & Regional Planning joint-degree program in urban and regional planning, J.D./M.S.P., permit the completion of both degrees concurrently. Current law students must meet with and submit all documents for admission to the College of Law Joint- Degree Coordinator before July 1st of their first year of law school. The College of Law Joint-Degree Program Coordinator will then submit their completed packet to the College of Law and the Department of Sport Management for approval. Any student who has completed M.S.P. coursework prior to matriculating to the College of Law, or who wishes to apply for the joint-degree following the completion of their first year of law school, must obtain prior written approval from the College of Law before applying for the joint-degree.
Applicants to the M.S.P. program must have a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university and are expected to have a competitive GRE score. Applicants should contact the Department of Urban & Regional Planning to obtain specific information on the necessary GRE requirement. An LSAT score may be considered in lieu of the GRE for current College of Law Students at the discretion of the Department of Urban & Regional Planning.
