Concurrent Enrollment Options
The University of Tulsa offers an excellent opportunity for motivated students to simultaneously earn both their law degree and a Master’s degree from TU in less time than it would take to pursue each degree separately.
At TU Law, students may build their own concurrent enrollment curriculum with several of our graduate programs with a “double counting” of 6 to 10 credit hours depending upon the students areas of graduate school interest. Popular options in the past have included the JD/MBA, the JD/ MA English Language and Literature and the JD/MA Clinical Psychology.
Graduate students at The University of Tulsa have the opportunity to pursue multiple degrees and reduce the total number of credit hours required for the programs than if they were taken separately.
