The College of Law and College of Social Sciences & Policy joint graduate pathway in law and international affairs, J.D./M.S. in International Affairs, permits the completion of both programs concurrently. Current law students must meet with and submit all documents for admission to the College of Law joint graduate pathway coordinator before July 1 of their first year of law school. The College of Law joint graduate pathway coordinator will then submit their completed packet to the College of Law and the College of Social Sciences & Policy for approval. Any student who has completed M.S. in International Affairs coursework prior to matriculating to the College of Law, or who wishes to apply for the joint graduate pathway after beginning their second year of law school, must obtain prior written approval from the College of Law before applying for the joint graduate pathway.
Applicants to the M.S. in International Affairs program must have a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university, an upper division (junior and senior) grade point average of 3.0 or better, and minimum score of 150 verbal, 150 quantitative, and 4.0 writing on the GRE. Applicants should contact the Social Sciences & Policy to obtain specific information on the necessary GRE requirement. The College of Social Sciences & Policy will waive the GRE requirement for current College of Law students with a 158 or higher LSAT score.
