Joint M.A./J.D. Program
Students who have successfully completed their first year at the Wayne State Law School may apply to the Department of History for admission to the juris doctor/master of arts (J.D./M.A.) program, which leads to a simultaneous receipt of a J.D. from the Law School and an M.A. from the Department of History.
An undergraduate major in history is not a prerequisite. The department, however, may refuse admission to or require special non-credit preparation from students with insufficient preparation.
- Students earn both a J.D. and a M.A. in history through a coordinated program that only requires one additional semester beyond that of the J.D.
- Students must be admitted to the Law School before applying for the joint program
Fall term: February 1 (early decision), May 1 (regular decision)
Winter term: November 1
Please contact Professor Eric Ash, Director of Graduate Studies for the Department of History, to discuss admissions procedures for this program.
