It is believed that the J.D./ M.A. graduates will be well positioned to utilize their legal, administrative and research knowledge in policy areas. These range from mental health, economic development and environmental sustainability, to issues of civil rights, immigration, international human rights and employment discrimination. In addition, a J.D./M.A. should increase the number of job opportunities in the fields of federal and state law enforcement, corrections and judicial positions.
Interested students should apply to the two programs separately. Contact Dr. Richard Colignon in the College for Public Health and Social Justice for admission to the M.A. program or 314-977-3640, and the SLU LAW Office of Admissions.
