JD/MHA (Master of Health Administration)
Explore our combined Juris Doctor (JD) and MHA degree
The four-year JD/MHA program is a collaborative effort between the Schulich School of Law and the School of Health Administration at Dalhousie. The combined JD/MHA enables students to select classes leading to the degrees of Juris Doctor and Master of Health Administration.
To gain acceptance onto this combined degree program, you must satisfy the entrance requirements of both our JD program and the School of Health Administration's Master of Health Administration (MHA) program. For admission, you must apply to both the School of Health Administration and the Schulich School of Law individually. Students applying for the MHA program may submit LSAT results in lieu of GMAT results.
The program consists of the following:
NOTE: Normally, students complete Healthcare Law (HESA 6360.03) in the first year of the MHA program and, therefore, do not enrol in Health Law (LAWS 2132.03). If HESA 6360 is not taken, then LAWS 2132 must be completed in year 3 or year 4.
Please note: The first and second years may be done in reverse order.
