This fall, the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences will introduce a B.S. in Law, Policy and Political Science program.

According to attorney Nicole E. Ballenger, who chairs the Law, Policy and Political Science programs, the degree will serve students interested in paralegal, government work or politics. Since courses are taught by highly-qualified attorneys, government administrators, compliance specialists and political representatives, students will be privy to relevant information and an awareness of what opportunities await them.

“The Law, Policy and Political Science bachelor’s degree, with a choice of a concentration in Legal Studies, Government and Public Policy or Political Science,” says Ballenger, “offers a student-focused curriculum, provides expanded opportunity and academic excellence, and invests in the graduate’s future.”

Also, the bachelor’s option is customizable, which means that students can affordably stack credentials via minors, like Pre-Law, Political Science and others; or certificates in Criminal Justice, Compliance, and many more.

The Legal Studies concentration is approved by the American Bar Association.
