Political Science Major with Pre-Law Concentration (B.S.)

The B.S. with a major in political science and a concentration in pre-law prepares students for legal careers by developing knowledge and skills needed to succeed in law school. This intensive program includes American constitutional law, judicial process, and international law courses. It concludes with a student internship experience with either an attorney, or in the legal/justice system.

Students in this program take courses that often simulate those at law schools and that develop the abilities to read for a clear understanding of content; to think critically; to solve problems; and to communicate with precision, style, and clarity.

Students in the program receive individualized attention from skilled pre-law advisors who are themselves graduates of law school and who know the law school admissions process.
