Curriculum Overview

Many professionals need a comprehensive understanding of what the legal system is, how it works, how it interrelates with social change, and how it assists people in asserting their rights. The Legal Studies Department addresses these needs through a rigorous curriculum and an interdisciplinary approach.  We offer a Bachelor of Arts Degree with a general legal studies or legal assistant concentration and a Master of Arts Degree, which can be obtained online or on campus.

We offer a flexible schedule and individualized attention:

  • Day and evening classes on campus
  • 100% online classes
  • Blended classes (50% online and 50% on campus)
  • Small class sizes
  • Knowledgeable faculty that are scholars and legal practitioners
  • Opportunities for professional work experience
