About MBA in Law/Sports Adminsitration

The faculties of the Law School and the Graduate Schools work in close collaboration to offer five exciting, new joint-degree programs: the J.D./M.S. in Sports Administration, the J.D./M.B.A. in Sports Administration, the J.D./M.S. in Marriage and Family Counseling, the J.D./M.B.A. in International Business, and the J.D./M.B.A. in Accounting.

These programs offer St. Thomas students the opportunity to complete both the Juris Doctor and the Master’s degrees in the three years it typically takes to complete the Juris Doctor degree alone. The Graduate School and the Law School have agreed to accept credits courses taken at the other school, thereby reducing the total number of credits needed for both degrees. Participants thus complete both degrees, receiving a diploma for each, in a reduced period with reduced overall costs.


Admissions
St. Thomas University School of Law offers five joint degrees in conjunction with St. Thomas University. These joint degrees offer St. Thomas students the opportunity to complete both the Juris Doctor and Master’s degrees in the three years it takes to complete the Juris Doctor alone. Applications for the joint degree programs will become available the second semester of your first year of law school, with graduate classes beginning the summer between your first and second year of law school. Please contact the Office of Graduate Admissions at 305-628-6613 or email Carole-Anne Chambers at cchambers@stu.edu for information on graduate school admissions and the joint degree program requirements.


Tuition and Fees: Joint Degree Program
Tuition and fees costs for students matriculated in the Joint Degree Program will vary each semester based on the number of credits enrolled in each program.

Students interested in applying for federal student loans to assist with the financing of their education should follow the same application process as traditional law students, and will be eligible to receive aid up to the same Cost of Attendance as traditional law students. On a case-by-case basis a joint degree student’s financial aid award may be increased to cover tuition and fee charges exceeding the law school flat rate tuition costs. Please visit the Financial Aid webpage or contact our Financial Aid and Student Services Advisor, Andy Marrero at amarrero@stu.edu with any questions or concerns regarding funding your studies as a Joint Degree Student.


Grading
For Law School and Graduate School courses, joint degree students will be graded on the respective grading scales applicable to them at the Law School and Graduate School.


Academic Standing
Joint degree students who exceed the necessary requirements for good standing in the J.D. program at the Law School and at the Graduate School in which they are enrolled shall remain in good academic standing. Those who fall below the minimum levels required for good standing at either school are placed on academic probation, subject to the rules governing academic probation and dismissal at the School or Schools at which they are on probation.

Except in exceptional circumstances in which a student is granted a leave of absence, students admitted into a joint degree program must take classes continuously upon admission into the program into completion of all required courses. Failure to satisfactorily complete all required courses in the graduate school will preclude the student from obtaining the graduate school degree and the J.D. Failure of the student to complete all required courses in the law school will likewise preclude the student from obtaining a J.D. degree or the respective graduate degree. The entire required graduate school curriculum serves to replace elective credit hours the law student would otherwise have to take to acquire the J.D. degree. However, individual graduate course credit hours are not transferable to the J.D. degree. Accordingly, students must complete all required graduate school courses in order to meet graduation criteria for the J.D. degree. Students are not given partial credit. In the event the student does not satisfactorily complete all required courses in the respective graduate school the student will then be required to take elective courses in the J.D. program sufficient to satisfy graduation requirements and the student will not be given J.D. credit for the graduate degree courses.

Likewise, in the event the student does not successfully complete the required J.D. program, the respective graduate school will not count any of the law school courses toward degree requirements in the respective graduate school and the student would have to acquire sufficient credit hours in the respective graduate school to qualify for the respective graduate school degree.
