The HKS curriculum isn't that strong for what I'm interested in, and I would be interested in trying to do a joint degree with HLS and Columbia SIPA or SAIS. Is this possible at all...?
I asked about this. As I understand it (and I could be wrong, so you should also ask the school), it's possible to do a concurrent
degree, but not a joint
degree. You can go on leave for more or less any reason for a few years, so if you want to leave HLS temporarily and do two years at SIPA or wherever, you can do that without trouble. But it makes for five total years, not four. If you felt like it and if the other school agreed, you could even do some sort of alternation: one year at HLS, one year at other school, one year at HLS, one year at other school, one year at HLS. The only real restriction is that you have to finish your law degree within (I think) seven years total.
I think there's some sort of special status with the Fletcher School at Tufts, but I can't track down anything specific about it. (I'd expect it to be here
, but it doesn't say anything special there.)
