History, B.A., Pre-Law Concentration

Pre-Law Concentration

Students who wish to major in history and prepare for law school or prestigious J.D.-Ph.D. programs can opt for a pre-law concentration. Students should contact Robert Baker, the department’s pre-law advisor, for more information about law school admissions.

Area A-F requirements for the Pre-Law Concentration are the same as for the B.A. in History. One or more of the following courses are strongly recommended:

Area G: Major Courses (30 Hours)

Required Courses to fulfill CTW requirement (4 Hours)

One course in African, Asian, Latin American, Middle Eastern, or world history

Capstone Course in Historical Research (4 Hours)

Area H: Minor and Additional Courses

Students in the pre-law concentration must take an additional 9 hours. At least three credit hours must come from Field 2.

Other courses may be substituted for the Area H requirement by the History pre-law advisor.

Additional courses from departments other than the major must be taken to complete a minimum of 120 hours. The department strongly recommends that majors take the fourth semester of a foreign language: Lang 2002.
