A combination of core politi cal science courses and courses in related disciplines has been found to provide a sound background for law school. Some law schools will not accept any profes sional or technical courses as part of their minimum requirement. It is essential that the student consult with his or her advisor in instances where such courses will be taken. In addition to meeting the basic require-ments for the Political Science major, the Pre-law student must enroll in ECON 2410 (or 2420); PHIL 2110; COMM 3210 (or 2200); and PS 3530 (or ENGL 4605); ACTG 3000 or BLAW 3400; and one upper-division PS law class.Recommended CurriculumFRESHMAN SOPHOMOREENGL 1010, 1020 (Comm) 6 ENGL 2020 or 2030 orCOMM 2200 (Comm) 3 HUM 2610 (Hum/FA) 3Mathematics 3 Humanities and/or Fine ArtsPS 1010 (Soc/Beh Sci) 3 (2 prefixes) 6PS 2010 3 ECON 2410 (Soc/Beh Sci) or Natural Sciences (2 prefixes) 8 ECON 2420 3Foreign Language/Minor 6 HIST 2010, 2020, or 2030 6 32 PS 2440 3 PHIL 2110 3 Foreign Language/Minor 6 30JUNIOR SENIORPS 3370, 3380 6 PS Political Theory 6ENGL 4605 or PS 3530 3
