Social Science: Pre-Law (49)


The pre-law program is essentially a social science major with the addition of specifically chosen courses that will help the student acquire analytical and communication skills required by the legal profession. For students who complete the pre-law curriculum but choose not to attend law school, there are a number of careers for which the pre-law curriculum is appropriate, such as government service, journalism, business, foreign service, and education.
