Health Outcomes Research and Evaluation Sciences, M.S. & Law, J.D Dual Degree
Saint Louis University's School of Law and its Center for Outcomes Research jointly administer an interdisciplinary Juris Doctor/Master of Science in Health Outcomes Research and Evaluation Sciences. Students can earn the J.D./M.S. degree at SLU in three and one-half years.
Students complete their first-year core curriculum courses in SLU School of Law. Thereafter, students attend classes at the School of Law and participate in online courses through the Center for Outcomes Research.
Students are not permitted to enroll in more than 16 credits per semester. This 16-credit cap is waived during the seventh and final semester of the dual-degree program or in exceptional cases, by approval of the director of the M.S. program and the associate dean of academic affairs at the School of Law.
For additional information see the catalog entries for the following programs:
