The College of Law and the J. Mack Robinson College of Business offer a dual degree program leading to the juris doctor (J.D.) and master of public accountancy (M.P.A.) degrees.
The J.D./M.P.A. is a course of study which allows selected previously-approved course work earned in one degree program to satisfy some of the elective course requirements of the other degree program. This enables a student to complete the requirements for both degrees in a shorter time than required to complete both degrees separately. Students who have already earned a J.D. degree or an M.P.A. degree at Georgia State University or another institution are not eligible for the dual program.
The following regulations apply to students accepted to both the J.D. and M.P.A. programs and are enrolled in the dual degree program as opposed to being enrolled in each degree program separately.
Applicants to the J.D./M.P.A. dual degree program must meet the entrance requirements and follow the application procedures of both the College of Law and Robinson College of Business. Applicants must be accepted by both colleges. Admission into one program does not presume admission to the other. To be in the J.D./M.P.A dual degree program, students must be admitted to both programs before completing either program.
Applicants must take the LSAT to apply to the College of Law.
Students who are accepted to both the J.D. and M.P.A. programs and wish to be enrolled in the dual degree program are responsible for providing written notification of their intentions to each college.
An accepted applicant, who at the time of admission to the M.P.A. program, has not completed the foundation and prerequisite courses must complete these requirements in a manner approved by the faculty adviser and the director of master’s admissions.
