Combining programs

The Schulich School of Law, in conjunction with other faculties, offers four combined degree programs:

  • Juris Doctor/Master of Business Administration (JD/MBA)
  • Juris Doctor/Master of Public Administration (JD/MPA)
  • Juris Doctor/Master of Library and Information Science (JD/MLIS)
  • Juris Doctor/Master of Health Services Administration (JD/MHSA)

The JD/MBA program allows students to obtain the two degrees in four years instead of the five that would be required to take the degrees separately. The JD/MPA, the JD/MLIS, and the recently developed JD/MHSA are similarly structured to allow you to complete the two degrees in four years instead of the usual five.

Students intending to apply to any of the combined programs should inquire directly to the Registrar's Office at Dalhousie University.
