Joint and Dual Degree Programs in East Asian Studies

EAST ASIAN STUDIES AND LAW

This joint degree program grants an M.A. degree in East Asian Studies and a Doctor of Jurisprudence (J.D.) degree. It is designed to train students interested in a career in teaching, research, or the practice of law related to East Asian legal affairs. Students must apply separately to the East Asian Studies M.A. program and to the Stanford School of Law and be accepted by both. Completing this combined course of study requires approximately four academic years, depending on the student's background and level of training in Chinese, Japanese, or Korean. Up to 45 units of approved courses may be counted towards both degrees. For more information, see the "Joint Degree Programs" section of this bulletin. Students who have been accepted by both programs should consult with the departments to determine which courses can be double-counted.

Completing the dual program requires at least two years, including one summer session when beginning the education component of the program.
