									                                          COMBINED JD/MA ENGLISH PROGRAM


Please see the Faculty of Law Academic Handbook on-line for details of the program.

As a combined degree, the J.D. and M.A. are awarded simultaneously. Students must, therefore, have satisfied
both the J.D. and the M.A. requirements before either degree may be conferred.

In the first year of the program, students must complete all first-year courses at the Faculty of Law.
