Undergraduate Legal Studies

Paralegal Studies (PLGL)Courses

Paralegal StudentThe Undergraduate Legal Studies Program offers courses relating to various legal topics as part of degree requirements for an Associate in Applied Science in Paralegal Studies. The Paralegal AAS is offered completely online; thus, making this AAS accessible to non-resident and non-traditional students! Some of these classes may also be applied toward requirements for a major in Political Science and a minor in Legal Studies available through the Department of Political Science & Criminal Justice.

Although these classes are designed to prepare students for a career as a paralegal, they also offer insight into, and practical knowledge of, legal topics that may be of assistance to students who wish to attend law school. Thus, pre-law students often take them as electives or as part of a Bachelor's Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies or Political Science, as well as a Legal Studies minor.  Students should check with their academic advisors in that regard.  In addition, the Legal Studies director is available to answer questions concerning these courses.

Courses offered through the Undergraduate Legal Studies Program are available each semester per the following schedule:
