Program overview

Students majoring in Legal Studies study of law within a liberal arts framework and benefit from close contact with our faculty. Most classes are limited to 25 students and students regularly interact with faculty on honors theses, internships, and as undergraduate research assistants. Because the Legal Studies major hones students’ critical thinking, conflict resolution, and oral and written communication skills, Legal Studies majors are well-trained for a wide array of careers. While some of our students attend law school, Legal Studies alumni also go into careers in mediation, court administration, law enforcement, government, public interest, business, and, education, and many students attend graduate school in a variety of social science and humanities fields.
