Legal Studies

The Legal Studies major provides an excellent background for students interested in pursuing professional careers within the legal system. The Legal Studies major is uniquely prepared to conduct legal research and other professional work in government, the courts, agencies and businesses. Legal Studies students participate in a series of on-campus “mock trials.” Graduates receive a Bachelor of Arts degree from the Justice Studies Deparment.

The program also offers an introduction to the study of law for students interested in entering law school as many Legal Studies graduates pursue graduate or law school degrees.
