J.D. M.A.D.I.R.   

Seton Hall University offers the opportunity to earn a joint degree in Law (Juris Doctor) and the Master of Arts in Diplomacy and International Relations.  

The Master of Arts in Diplomacy and International Relations (M.A.D.I.R.) educates students for a wide variety of management and leadership positions in international organizations, international businesses, non-governmental organizations, and government agencies involved in international matters.  

The joint degree M.A. and J.D. program presents an opportunity for students to combine a thorough understanding of international policy issues with the rigorous training of law school, and to achieve the education provided by both degrees more efficiently.  The program, which is generally available only to full-time students, may be completed in four years and one summer rather than the five years usually required for the completion of both degrees.

Students interested in the joint program for a Juris Doctor and Master of Arts in Diplomacy and International Relations (J.D.-M.A.D.I.R.) must complete the 85 credits (88 credits beginning with the Fall 2009 entering class) required for the J.D., but need only complete 30 credits for the M.A.D.I.R. Students who pursue each degree independently must complete 45 credits for the M.A.D.I.R.
