Law and Arts Management

JD/MAM, School of Public Policy & Management at Heinz College, Carnegie Mellon

The University of Pittsburgh School of Law and Heinz College offer a joint degree program designed to train students for careers in which arts management and law overlap.  This program, spanning four years, prepares you for careers in which arts management and law overlap. You must satisfy both schools' degree requirements, but some credit is given by each school for completing the other school's program.

The joint degree program is designed to be completed in eight semesters over four academic years instead of the five years required if pursued separately. Students interested in the joint degree program can pursue both programs simultaneously. During the first year, students study at either the Heinz School or the School of Law, taking the standard first-year curriculum of the respective school. The second year involves full-time study at the other school. For the third and fourth years, students take courses at both schools. In order to graduate with both degrees, students have to fulfill both schools’ degree requirements.
