Information Session for M.A./J.D. and Ph.D./J.D. Media Law Dual Degree Programs

Have you thought about what you want to do after you graduate? Thinking about a career in media law and policy? A strong background in law and mass communication can be a launching pad for a career in law, media, business, entertainment, government, public policy or academia.

The nationally renowned UNC Hussman School of Journalism and Media and School of Law have brought together these two dynamic fields to offer two exciting dual degree programs in media law and policy that allow students to earn simultaneous M.A./J.D. or Ph.D./J.D. degrees in less time than it would take to earn the individual degrees separately. An earned master’s degree is required to apply for the dual Ph.D./J.D. degree program. And great news for prospective dual degree students: If you have taken the LSAT, you do not need to also take the GRE; your LSAT score can be substituted for the GRE!

Dual degree students often work with the UNC Center for Media Law and Policy.  Members of the program’s faculty and current dual degree students will be available to answer questions.

We will be holding two information sessions for the Dual Degree Program this fall. The first, which is geared primarily for current law students, will take place on November 3 at 5:30 PM in Room 5048 at the UNC School of Law. This second session will be on November 8 at 5:30 PM in the Freedom Forum Conference Center in Carroll Hall at the UNC Hussman School of Journalism and Media.  It is suitable for a broader audience, including current undergraduate and graduate students.

You can also join this November 8 session via Zoom.  To do so, you will need to register here first.
