Dual-Degree Law Programs

UNC Charlotte has partnered with the Charlotte School of Law to offer several unique dual degree programs. Students now have the opportunity to earn both a Juris Doctor and a Master’s degree in real estate, accountancy, business administration or public administration in less time than if the degrees were pursued independently.

The following programs are offered as a partnership between the Charlotte School of Law and the Belk College of Business:

J.D. and Master of Accountancy (MACC) Program (Tax Track)

Full-time students spend the first two years of study at Charlotte School of Law. They then spend their entire third year at UNC Charlotte, and complete the MACC at the end of that year, returning to Charlotte School of Law in year four for their remaining courses. Part-time students will be enrolled exclusively at Charlotte School of Law until they have completed all of the courses that comprise the first year curriculum for full-time students. These part-time students may then enroll at UNC Charlotte and begin taking courses toward the MACC. Each school will grant nine (9) units of credit for courses taken at the other school.

J.D. and Master of Business Administration (MBA)

The J.D./MBA dual degree, launched last fall, was the first collaboration between Charlotte School of Law and UNC Charlotte. Full-time students spend the first full year of study at either UNC Charlotte or the Charlotte School of Law. They will then spend their entire second or third year at the other institution. For the remainder of the program, students will take classes at both UNC Charlotte and the Charlotte School of Law. Each school will grant nine units of credit for courses taken at the other school.

Each school will grant nine (9) units of credit for courses taken at the other school.
