Joint Degree Programs

UCLA Law has long been a leader in the interdisciplinary study of law. The School’s joint degree programs are an important component of this interdisciplinary focus. Through our joint degree programs, students augment their legal education and gain specialized training and expertise that will prepare them for wide-ranging professional pursuits.

Formal Joint Degree Programs

Students at UCLA Law may choose to pursue one of these eight formal joint degree programs we offer in cooperation with other distinguished UCLA professional schools and departments:

Law and African-American Studies

Law and American Indian Studies

Law and Management

Law and Philosophy

Law and Public Health

Law and Public Policy

Law and Social Welfare

Law and Urban Planning

How to Apply

To pursue one of our formal joint degree programs, students must apply both to UCLA Law and directly to the other school. Applicants should contact the appropriate graduate school or department to obtain its application, and must meet the department's requirements and deadlines. Students interested in creating an individualized joint degree program, or pursuing a joint degree program with another university, will work with the Dean of Students office during their first or second years of law school to seek approval for the joint degree.
