Expand your thinking with a wide range of classes

Lawyers analyze facts, research similar cases and results from the past, and identify elements that can be influenced to achieve a successful outcome.

Economists must exercise these same intellectual muscles when they make economic predictions and advise leaders of business and government.

As an Economics major taking the Pre-Law track at IUP, you'll receive a comprehensive education that will prepare you for law school or a career in economics.

You'll take a wide range of classes covering many aspects of economics. The courses in the Pre-Law track provide the academic preparation demanded by law schools and help you develop the skills and knowledge you'll need for the law school admissions examination.

With planning, the free electives in this major can provide space in your schedule for a minor or an internship.
