Program Requirements

The dual-degree program requires a combined total of 130 credits, including 42 credits for the completion of the Forensic Psychology M.A. program at John Jay College and 88 credits for the completion of the J.D. program at CUNY Law School.  However, 12 credits from CUNY Law will be credited both towards the J.D. and M.A. programs. Likewise, 12 M.A. credits from John Jay will be credited towards the CUNY Law J.D. program. 

Consequently, due to the 24 transfer credits applied in the dual-degree program, the actual number of credits taken will be 106, resulting in graduation for full-time students in four years instead of five.
