Degree Requirements

The Juris Doctor/Master of Science in Library and Information Science is a combined degree which may be conferred by the School of Information Studies and the College of Law. Students admitted to this program have the opportunity to obtain both the Juris Doctor and the M.S. in Library and Information Science in substantially less time than would be required were the two degrees obtained independently. Because a joint degree program involves reciprocal application of electives, students are not awarded either degree until the requirements for both degrees are completed.

Students with general questions and inquiries concerning procedures regarding joint degrees should contact Courtney Abbott Hill, Associate Director for Student Life, Suite 220 College of Law (443-1146, cabbotth@law.syr.edu).
