Dual Degree Programs

University at Albany

    Admission Requirements: The applicant must score well on the LSAT. The GRE, a requirement for M.P.A. admission, will be waved in lieu of the LSAT.

    Applicants must submit a full application to the University at Albany for the M.P.A. program. Full application includes application fee, transcripts, three letters of recommendation, resume, and personal statement. Applicants will preferably have an undergraduate GPA of 3.2 or better.

    The dual J.D./M.P.A. degree program has been designed to promote integration between the fields of law and public administration. Covering areas such as public management, policy analysis, public finance and human resources management, it enables students to earn both degrees in, at most, four years of full-time study, rather than the usual five. The program is designed so that a maximum of six courses may be applicable to both degrees. Recipients of joint J.D./M.P.A. degrees hold professional credentials for a broad range of careers in government, consulting, teaching, research and law.

    The JD/MA dual degree in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies is an exciting new program articulated between the Department of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and Albany Law School. This program allows graduate students to combine their interests in feminist, critical race, and social justice issues with legal studies, leading to professional employment in law, advocacy, nonprofits, non-governmental organizations, and community organizing, to name a few.

    Students in the JD/MA dual degree program will fulfill requirements for both degrees, which may be completed in four years or less. They will spend their first year at Albany Law School and their second year in the M.A. program. The arrangement of the remaining two years is flexible (see curriculum map as a model). Students wishing to enroll in a dual degree program must meet the admissions requirements of each school, including the completion of the LSAT for Albany Law.

    Students in dual-degree programs must earn 87 credits to receive the JD degree. A maximum of 12 credits earned in the M.A. program may count toward the 87 required credits. This maximum means that students must earn 75 credits at Albany Law School to obtain both degrees.

    The M.A. in WGSS requires a total of 32 credits, including several core courses, a Master's Final Project, and elective courses forming a cohesive cluster. A maximum of 9 credits earned in the J.D. program may count toward the 32 required credits (and may possibly form the cohesive cluster requirement).

    The M.B.A. degree program for current J.D. students has been designed to promote integration between the fields of law and business administration. Covering areas such as Accounting, Information Technology Management (ITM), Marketing and Management, it enables students to earn both degrees in four years of study, rather than the usual five. The program is designed so that certain elective courses may be applicable to both degrees. Recipients of both the J.D. and M.B.A. degrees hold professional credentials for a broad range of careers in corporate law, business consulting, teaching, and research.

    Admission Requirements
    The applicant must score well on the LSAT. The GMAT, a requirement for M.B.A. admission, will be waived in lieu of the LSAT.

    Applicants will preferably have an undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or better and submit academic transcripts, three letters of recommendation, a resume, and a personal statement. All applicants must be matriculated in the J.D. program at Albany Law School.

    Current J.D. students are strongly encouraged to submit personal statements and recommendation letters designed for admission into a M.B.A. program.  Specifically, personal statements and recommendation letters should be tailored for consideration by a M.B.A. Admissions Committee. It is suggested that applications include at least one letter of recommendation from current Albany Law School faculty.

    Interviews are not required; however, they are not uncommon and may be requested of applicants.

    The University at Albany’s Department of History and the Albany Law School have established a collaborative arrangement for graduate students seeking to obtain a Master of Arts (M.A.) in History and the Juris Doctor (J.D.) in Law.  Drawing on the disciplinary parallels between history and the law, this collaborative course of study provides a space in which students can hone their skills of research, analysis, interpretation, and presentation. By combining historical and legal training, the M.A./J.D. also equips students with wide-ranging topical expertise. The modern workplace demands fresh perspective. M.A./J.D. graduates have the skills and knowledge to thrive in the most competitive professional environments.

    The dual J.D./M.A. in History degree program enables students to earn both degrees in, at most, four years of full-time study, rather than the usual five. The program is designed so that six law school credits may be applied toward the M.A. degree and 12 credits from the M.A. in History may be applied toward the J.D. degree.

    The School of Public Health and Albany Law School offer a collaborative academic program for students interested in pursuing a law degree and a Master of Public Health.  The new JD/MPH creates significant opportunities for Albany Law and UAlbany students interested in the fast growing areas of health law and public health policy. Students have an opportunity to address and solve issues at the intersection between law and public health. 

    Students are responsible for completing each of the separate degrees at their respective school, but each school recognizes and accepts credits for a range of specific courses, creating a more efficient experience for students.   Albany Law School students who are admitted to the Master of Public Health Program must complete their first year of studies at Albany Law School before they are eligible to transfer credits toward their J.D. from the Master of Public Health program.   Interested students can complete the JD/MPH in 3.5 years, including summer coursework.

    Depending on MPH concentration, students may count up to 9 credits of Albany Law School courses (from an approved list) and up to 3 professional development course credits toward the requirements for completion of the Master of Public Health degree. Likewise, Albany Law School students may count up to 12 credits of MPH courses (from an approved list) toward the requirements of the Juris Doctor degree.

    In addition, students in the collaborative program will be able to cross-register for up to 6 internship credits, in accordance with expectations, standards and registration practices at and between the two institutions.

      The dual degree J.D./masters in bioethics program offered by Albany Law School in conjunction with the Bioethics Program of Clarkson University and the Mount Sinai School of Medicine offers students interested in pursuing a law degree with a specialization in bioethics a unique opportunity to participate in an innovative, personalized, intensive education program in bioethics. The course of study is designed to prepare students for careers in bioethics, health care, public policy, government or association work, or as practicing attorneys focusing on the health care field. Through a combination of online and on-site courses, students earn a J.D. with a nine-course curriculum in bioethics. They have the opportunities to take courses from leading bioethicists and to study clinical ethics and research ethics at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, which is located in a world-renowned medical center in New York City.

      The bioethics section of the program starts with an intensive two-week summer pro seminar on Health and Human Values taught at Clarkson University, which incorporates a clinical visit to the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City. After completing this seminar, dual-degree students take three core courses online (health policy, bioethics and clinical ethics), a required online practicum, a two-term master's project, a one-week on-site clinical ethics practicum, and one-week on-site capstone seminar. Law and bioethics dual-degree students satisfy three master's courses by completing a concentration in Health Law at Albany Law School and may satisfy the Law School's upper-class writing requirement by completing their master's project. J.D./M.S. Bioethics students have the option to complete both degrees in three or four years. Albany Law School is one of the few law schools to offer a joint bioethics degree.

      The Bioethics Program M.S. in Bioethics degree is worth 12 credits toward a J.D. at Albany Law School. And the Health Law concentration at Albany Law School earns you 12 credits toward the UGC/MSSM M.S. Degree.

      Tuition
      Waivers or transfers may be granted for up to three graduate courses. Twelve graduate courses or equivalent required for master's degree. Four graduate courses are required for the Certificate Programs.

      The dual J.D./M.S. in Bioethics program is offered by Albany Law School in conjunction with the Alden March Bioethics Institute at Albany Medical College. The Alden March Bioethics Institute is an internationally recognized leader in the growing field of bioethics and its graduate education programs bring together outstanding teachers, innovative researchers, excellent students, the latest teaching technology, and an intensive clinical ethics program. The M.S in Bioethics is designed for those who want to put bioethics to work in their own professional careers. Albany Medical College is conveniently located directly across the street from Albany Law School, which gives law students a unique opportunity to participate in clinical rounds, ethics consultations and educational sessions on a regular basis.

      Master's students must complete a total of 10 courses. The online and onsite courses include empirical bioethics, research ethics, classic cases, clinical ethics and others. Students also complete a required master's project, choosing a traditional thesis, two publishable journal articles, or a practical project. Law and bioethics dual degree students can satisfy master's requirements by taking three specified courses at Albany Law School. Students can also count 12 credits earned in the Master of Science in Bioethics program toward their J.D. at Albany Law School. Because students can "double-count" courses, they can complete a J.D./ M.S. in Bioethics in three to four years. Albany Law School students may also satisfy the Law School's upper class writing requirement and the bioethics final research project by completing one research paper that satisfies the requirements of both programs.

      The Alden March Bioethics Institute works closely with Albany Law School to create a plan of study that accommodates both schools' schedules. M.S. courses are offered fall, winter, spring and summer to give students flexibility in completing their requirements. The M.S. in Bioethics and the J.D./M.S. Degree programs are registered by the New York State Board of Regents.

      Admission Requirements: The applicant must be accepted and matriculated in both programs through the admissions process of each program to be enrolled in the dual degree program.

      Recommendations are not required for J.D./M.B.A. dual program students, however the Clarkson University Admissions Committee reserves the right to request them if additional information is needed to make an admissions decision.

      Combined-program students must apply and be accepted at each school independently. Clarkson University applications are usually submitted by spring of the first year at Albany Law School. Second-year Albany Law School students may apply for the joint program.

      MASTER OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION IN HEALTHCARE MANAGEMENT

      The dual J.D./M.B.A. in Healthcare Management with Clarkson University combines a rigorous M.B.A. curriculum with in-depth analysis of the healthcare industry. The degree compliments Albany Law School's concentration in health law and helps prepare students for careers in health administration, elder or healthcare law-as patient advocates, or in other health-related fields.

      The Clarkson University M.B.A. program is accredited by AACSB International, the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. The M.B.A. in Healthcare Management program is also accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME)-a distinction shared by only a limited number of healthcare management programs in the nation.

      The dual program allows students to "double count" courses—reducing the total time it takes to complete the two degrees—so both degrees are earned typically in four years. As a result, the cost of earning the two degrees is significantly less than the cost of earning the degrees separately. Clarkson University accepts up to four Albany Law School courses toward the M.B.A. degree. In addition, Albany Law School will transfer in one term's worth of free electives from the M.B.A. courses taken at Clarkson University which allows the student to eliminate the last term at Albany Law School. Courses taken as an undergraduate may also be considered for M.B.A. course waiver. In total, Clarkson University can waive up to eight courses toward the M.B.A.; four taken at Albany Law School and up to four based on undergraduate course work.

      Combined program students typically complete the first year full-time at Albany Law School. The second year is spent as a full-time student at Clarkson University. Some students complete the M.B.A. requirements in the second year. If necessary, students can complete the remaining courses by taking one evening M.B.A. course per term in the third and fourth years.

      Admission Requirements: Undergraduate degree; must be admitted to J.D. program at Albany Law School; prerequisites may be required, depending on undergraduate preparation.

      The dual J.D./M.B.A. program provides students of both institutions with a richer educational experience and a broader range of professional opportunities. The program promotes integration between the fields of law and business administration by facilitating the transfer of course credits between the M.B.A. and J.D. curricula.

      The program is practitioner-oriented, emphasizing the behavioral aspects of management as well as more technical approaches and is designed to educate the manager to view the whole organization as a system that is composed of interdependent subsystems: structural, human, financial, marketing and economic. When combined with prior business experience, the program will develop managers prepared to make decisions in the context of the welfare of the total organization.

      Master of Business Administration

      The joint J.D./M.B.A. with Clarkson University combines a strong foundation in business theory with experience in practical business applications. The program draws extensively on the experience and potential of Capital Region businesses and reflects the needs of today's business community. The M.B.A. program culminates with a capstone course where students serve as consultants to companies and address real-world challenges by delivering a business plan with executable solutions.  Students also complete a graduate internship which enhances their business experience. In combination with the Albany Law School Juris Doctor, the M.B.A. provides excellent preparation for those who plan on careers as in-house corporate counsel, with law firms that represent business clientele, or other career paths that require complementary knowledge of law and business.

      The joint program allows students to "double count" courses—reducing the total time it takes to complete the two degrees—so both degrees are earned typically in four years. As a result, the cost of earning the two degrees is significantly less than the cost of earning the degrees separately.
