Concurrent Juris Doctor/Master of Accountancy

Through our partnership with the School of Law, we offer the concurrent Juris Doctor/Master of Accountancy program, which allows students to take courses that provide credit for both degrees. By pursuing the degrees concurrently, students complete the 30-hour Master of Accountancy (MAccy) and the 90-hour Juris Doctor (JD) with 108 hours of coursework. Six hours of the MAccy degree are counted toward the JD degree, and six hours of the JD degree are used to complete the MAccy degree. Students will choose two cross-listed law courses as accountancy electives and two three-hour law courses to be counted as general electives.

To participate in the concurrent degree program, students must be admitted by both the School of Law and the Graduate School/Patterson School of Accountancy. Students must enroll in all 31 hours of required first-year law courses in one academic year.

Required Accountancy & Taxation Courses (12 hours, 4 courses)

Accountancy Electives (12 hours, choose 4 courses)
