B.A. in Economics Pre-Law Track

The Pre-Law Program provides a range of academic experiences that law schools have indicated are desirable. It consists of a major in one of seven departments (Business, Criminology, Economics, English, History, Philosophy, or Political Science) plus a total of twenty-one semester hours selected from the remaining departments.

For example, if a student selects Economics as his/her major field, he/she then chooses, with the help of his/her advisor, a total of twenty-one hours from the six other departments, excluding Economics. Each department offers three courses in the Pre-Law Program, and at least one course must be selected from each field. The remaining three hours are chosen from any of these six departments.

An advantage of this program is that, whether or not the student is accepted at a law school, he/she has completed a major in a discipline.
