Regent University offers students an opportunity to complete multiple graduate degrees at once through a Joint Degree program that reduces the overall credit hours required. Joint degrees are available between the School of Government and Regent's other graduate schools.
Regent University's joint degree program in law and government provides:
Students find they can use a Juris Doctor degree in public service and government positions at many types of organizations upon graduation. By pursuing a joint Juris Doctor (JD), students can, in only one additional year, gain a solid foundation for public service by earning a master's degree in Government from the Robertson School of Government. Similarly, government students will significantly enhance their professional standing and ability to influence important issues by earning a law degree.
Typically, a joint degree program will reduce the required credits by about 20 percent. Students should seek admission to a joint degree program before the completion of one-third of any single degree program. This should coincide with the completion of the student's approved degree plan (ADP). A joint degree program will normally require a minimum of two-and-one-half to three years of full-time study (four years for the M.Div. or JD).
Year 1: Robertson School of Government

Remember that you must apply to both the Robertson School of Government and the School of Law separately, and be accepted by each school.
