Legal Studies is designed to provide students with a broad background of interdisciplinary courses focusing on the development and structure of the law. It provides a blended, specialized curriculum that retains the strengths of a liberal arts and sciences education while providing an excellent preparation for advanced study in the field of law. Students will be provided with an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the American judiciary with integral layers of ethics, social sciences and analytical skills. An internship in a legal setting is one of the key components. The program is especially helpful for those seeking a more complete understanding of the legal system and the interaction of law in society, and those preparing for the Law School Admission Test. A pre-law advisory committee exists to provide students with career counseling. This is an Interdisciplinary Studies major program.
