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.

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

It concludes with a student internship experience with either an attorney, or in the legal/justice system.

What Does It Take to Get into Law School?

A career in law can be rewarding in many ways, but becoming an attorney is challenging. Typically, would-be lawyers must:

  • Perform well academically while pursuing a rigorous baccalaureate program of study
  • Score well on the Law School Admissions Test
  • Gain entry into and finish a three-year program of legal study at a law school accredited by the American Bar Association
  • Pass the bar exam of the state in which they want to practice.

All of this requires a substantial investment of time, money, and energy.
