About This Degree

A minor in pre-law prepares students to understand the complex issues facing our society today. The knowledge gained through our department’s coursework helps students become better citizens of their communities and future leaders.


The Pre-Law Minor is an interdisciplinary program designed to help students develop essential skills for the study and practice of law. The minor consists of 18 credits selected from both required and elective courses. All courses in the Pre-Law Minor may be applied to the Political Science major.

The Pre-Law program is under the directorship of Professor Louise Stanton. We also have a Facebook page for the program so students, alumni, and friends can stay in touch.
