general overview

The Museum Studies specialization will offer students the basic preparation needed to work in the museum sector and the theoretical knowledge necessary to think critically about a widely under-analyzed discipline. Museums are rapidly becoming centers of community dialogue and are emerging as places of multicultural discourse. The specialization in museum studies combined with a traditional major field will prepare the student for graduate programs in public history or museum studies. Museum studies is open to students in any major and may appeal especially to students majoring in art, history, physical education, the sciences, or to those specializing in African-American Studies.

Students in the Forensic Studies Specialization are required to complete a minimum of 12 semester hours of course work from the following courses. A minimum of 9 of these hours must be at the 300-level or above. PSY 302 Forensic Psychology and CRIM 354 Violent Crime are required of all students who pursue this specialization. One course must be chosen from each of the two following groups. Students may use designated courses to simultaneously satisfy requirements in their major/minor and the specialization. Note that many courses from Group A are 4 credits. Also note that all prerequisites are to be completed before registering for any of these courses.

A specialization in African American Studies requires 12 semester hours. This specialization is open to students majoring in any field. Nine semester hours may be selected from courses listed below, with the provision that no more than six semester hours may be taken from the same cross-referenced discipline.

general overview

There is no “preferred major” to prepare you for law school. Most law schools, as well as the American Bar Association, recommend that you choose a major on the basis of interest. That makes sense because you will probably do better studying something you are interested in. Most law schools are even reluctant to prescribe a list of courses you should take.

Although we agree in general with these opinions, we feel that it is possible to provide some structure to the Pre-Law experience. We have two goals in this. The first is to help you to maximize your chances of being accepted into law school. The second is to help you to succeed once you get there.

With these goals in mind, we have developed the program described below. It consists of a composite of classroom and other experiences. Successful completion of this program will result in a Specialization in Pre-Law, a designation that will be included on your transcript. More importantly, it will help put you on the road to a successful law career.

From tribal communities to global industrial processes, social relationships and institutions are the fabric of societies across the globe.
