Urban and Regional Planning and Law (J.D./M.S.P.)
The College of Law and Department of Urban and Regional Planning’s joint-degree program in Law and Urban and Regional Planning, J.D./M.S.P., permits completion of both degree programs concurrently. Interested applicants must first begin their study at the College of Law. Once enrolled in the first-year law curriculum, they will complete all necessary documentation for the application process through the Department of Urban and Regional Planning as well as a joint-degree application by the end of the first year in law school. All required documents should be returned to the College of Law Office of Admissions.
For the joint-degree program, both the GRE and LSAT must be taken in order to be considered. Applicants to the Urban and Regional Planning program must have a bachelor’s degree, an upper division (junior and senior) grade point average of 3.0 or higher and a minimum combined score of 1000 on the verbal and quantitative portions of the GRE.
