How can the MSL degree help your career?
Our MSL program is designed specifically to help working professionals leverage knowledge and understanding of the law so they can be more effective in their careers. Graduates of the MSL program return to the workplace with in-depth understanding of the U.S. legal system. The law touches every aspect of society in all sectors — banking, education, health care, human resources, business, journalism and media, IT, financial services, and other heavily regulated industries.
Earning an MSL degree will help you speak the language of the law, understand contemporary legal issues, and see the law’s real-world implications, as well as develop important legal skills such as communication skills, negotiation and advocacy skills, and critical thinking. These skills and specialized knowledge of the law can translate to any industry or professional field and help you stand out.
Is the degree flexible?
Yes. Our MSL program is designed specifically to allow you to tailor it to fit your needs. You can complete your degree in-person, online, or hybrid (a mix of in-person and online courses). You can study at a pace that matches your busy schedule. You can take anywhere from 1 to 7 credit hours (part-time) or 8+ credits (full-time) in our Fall, Spring or Summer semesters. Choose your own pace: complete the program in as little as 12-15 months (3 semesters), two years (5-6 semesters), or go at a slower pace (6+ semesters). The maximum duration within which the MSL degree has to be completed is four academic years.
