STG, Law, Juris Doctor / English, Master of Arts
STG JD / Eng MA: Introduction
The Combined Degree Program (CDP): STG, Law, Juris Doctor / English, Master of Arts is designed for students interested in studying the intersections of law and literature. The CDP permits the completion of both degrees in three years rather than the four years it would take to acquire them independently.
Applicants must apply to each program separately; they should indicate on their applications that they wish to be considered for the CDP. The MA program in English must be completed by coursework, not by thesis.
For a general description of CDPs, see General Regulations section 1.4.3.
