About

Gender and Women's Studies degree offered by the University of Arizona prepares students to practice law with an understanding of feminist theories, feminist and related social movements, and critical race and ethnic studies, as well as the interconnections of gender, law, public policy, and transnational economic and political processes.

Overview

The program enables students to build on these foundations while pursuing their own areas of interest by requiring them to produce an original Master's paper. The MA/JD is generally a four-year program.

Gender and Women's Studies degree offered by the University of Arizona is generally a four-year program, although several students have accumulated enough units to graduate one semester early. A minimum of 21 units of graduate coursework in Gender and Women’s Studies, plus 15 units of approved law coursework are required for the 36-unit M.A. in Gender and Women’s Studies. Students may transfer up to 15 units of GWS courses and seminars toward the J.D.

Students attend either Gender and Women’s Studies or The College of Law their first year. The second year is spent in the alternate program. Students would then complete their requirements for both degrees throughout the third and fourth years. Courses taken in Gender and Women’s Studies prior to admission to The College of Law cannot be applied to the J.D.
