Dual Degree Program in Law and East Asian Languages and Culture
Dual Degree Program in Law and East Asian Languages and Cultures
The J.D./M.A. EALC program combines the Juris Doctor program offered by the School of Law and the Master of East Asian Languages and Cultures program offered by the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences into 4 years and one summer of full time study.
Growing interdependence with East Asia, particularly with China, provides a need for lawyers versed in culture and language. A dual degree in Law and East Asian Languages and Cultures opens many doors for its recipients. One can find opportunities in international trade and finance, immigration law, and other related fields, as well as a greater ability to work with clients from various backgrounds.
Dual J.D./M.A. students are eligible and strongly encouraged to apply for a Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) fellowship through the Center for East Asian Studies.
