The pre-law minor may appeal to students who major in non-law-related fields and plan to apply to law school. It exposes them to legal courses before pursuing their professional education. The minor in pre-law does not guarantee successful admission into law school nor is it a prerequisite for law school.
Special graduation requirements: Students majoring or minoring in any of the programs offered by the Department of Political Science, Criminal Justice, and Organizational Leadership must earn at least a C- in each course counted as part of their program.
Political Science Majors may count PSC 100 (required in major) and PSC 305 (required in minor) in this major and also in the Pre-Law Minor, but no additional courses may be double-counted therein.
Criminal Justice Majors may count JUS 101 and JUS 203 for both their major and the Pre-Law Minor, but no additional courses may be double-counted therein.
