A well-rounded background is critical to acceptance into a university law program. Therefore, Cowley offers a diverse program with a variety of classes to prepare students as they consider various specialties within the field.
The rigors of law school require a solid base in general studies. The program consists of a well-rounded curriculum of general subjects, with an emphasis in criminal justice and law courses. Basic classes such as Public Speaking, Composition, College Algebra, Sociology, Literature, Philosophy and Psychology provide students with a base upon which they can build virtually any liberal arts-type education. More specific classes, such as Introduction to Criminal Justice, Criminal Law, and Constitutional Law, help tailor the program to the pre-law student. A number of elective hours allow the student to design an even more individualized program.
