Juris Doctor / Master of Divinity (JD/MDiv)
Students are required to apply and gain admission to both the Caruso School of Law and Seaver College's Religion Division. Each school maintains its own admission procedures and financial aid programs. Admission into one program does not guarantee admission into the other program. Scholarship applications must be filed separately as well, and the awards may be used only when the student is in residence at the school granting such award.
Admitted students may register at either the Caruso School of Law or the Religion Division for the first year and complete the normal first year course of study for the relevant degree. Students will then spend the second year in the other school. During the remaining three years, the student is required to register for three semesters in each school, although no particular sequence is required. Upon completion of the requirements for both degrees, each school will confer a degree to students.
