Overview

A Syracuse University student who is admitted to one of these programs has the opportunity to earn both the J.D. degree and the M.S. or M.A, as appropriate, in a variety of communications fields in substantially less time than would be required were the two degrees be obtained independently.

The duration of the joint program in communications varies according to the program chosen and the student’s prior coursework.
