STG, Law, Juris Doctor / Economics, Master of Arts
STG JD / Eco MA: Introduction
The Combined Degree Program (CDP): STG, Law, Juris Doctor / Economics, Master of Arts is designed for students who intend to pursue careers in areas that require some sophistication in economics, such as competition policy, commercial contracting, mergers and acquisitions, business organization, tax policy, environmental law, and international trade regulation.
The CDP permits the completion of both the Juris Doctor (JD) program and the eight-month MA program in three years rather than the four years it would take to acquire the degrees independently. (Note that this program cannot be combined with any of the collaborative specializations.)
For a general description of CDPs, see General Regulations section 1.4.3.
