Master of Science in Education

The Department of Educational Administration and Higher Education (EAHE) is partnering with the School of Law to offer a joint Master of Science in Education (M.S. Ed.) degree along with the Juris Doctorate (J.D.) degree. This program provides the opportunity to supplement a traditional legal education with the experience of school administration at the elementary and secondary level.

Students in this joint program will be uniquely prepared for careers that combine both legal and education needs, such as k-12 administration, public policy leadership roles, and student or employee advocate. Finally, students with this joint degree will be prepared to address the myriad of societal that present complex legal and educational issues. Students who complete this program will have enhanced educational and professional opportunities both inside and outside of academia.
