The School of Law requires all J.D. candidates to earn 90 credit hours to complete the degree. For students enrolled in the J.D./M.A. program, the Law School will accept nine (9) credit hours earned from approved courses in the master’s program in Indigenous Studies (ISP) toward the J.D. requirements. Students in the joint degree program should note that while the School of Law requires a 2.0 grade point average in J.D. course work to remain in good standing and graduate, the Graduate School requires a 3.0 grade point average for all courses counting toward the M.A. in the ISP portion of the degree.
The master’s program in ISP requires all candidates to earn thirty (30) graduate credit hours. The master’s program will accept for credit toward the M.A. degree twelve (12) credit hours earned from approved courses in the law school.
Students may use six (6) law hours toward satisfying their ISP specialization requirement, and apply the balance of the 12 law hours for which they may receive master’s credit toward their master’s electives.
