Master of Jurisprudence

School of Law: Master of Jurisprudence

This 30-credit-hour program is designed for those who do not wish to practice law, but are interested in gaining a deeper understanding of the American legal system. The M.Jur. degree is designed primarily for professionals practicing in areas that intersect with the law such as human relations, criminal and juvenile justice, the court system (including magistrates and probation officers), journalism, social work, regulatory agencies, county and municipal government, health care, intellectual property, technology and business. The M.Jur. provides practical knowledge about the law in less time than a J.D. program and more comprehensively than on-the-job training. Credits earned through the M.Jur. program will not count toward the completion of a J.D. degree, and the M.Jur. degree does not satisfy the requirements to sit for any state bar exam. Instead, a Master of Jurisprudence degree provides graduates with tools to help them better understand legal issues in their field.

Welcome to the M.Jur. Career Community!

Our team in the Career and Professional Development Center are excited about the numerous opportunities available to you.  We are here to partner with you as you DEFINE DISCOVER and DO for yourself.  Regardless of the career path you are choosing, we can help you get started and be successful on your professional journey.  Have fun exploring the many resources available to you!
