The University of Maine School of Law offers two dual degree programs in conjunction with the University of Southern Maine’s Muskie School of Public Service.
Maine Law’s J.D./M.P.H. dual degree program with the Muskie School of Public Service is an accelerated program that allows students to obtain a Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree and a Master of Public Health (M.P.H.) degree in four years rather than five. Public health is an important, ever-changing and growing area of expertise. Students will gain interdisciplinary knowledge and skills to prepare them for the growing field of regulatory compliance and public health policy.
The Law School and the Muskie School of Public Service also offer a program through which students can earn both a J.D. degree and a Master of Policy, Planning, and Management (M.P.P.M) degree.
