Department of Political Science and Public Administration and Paralegal Studies Program
Paralegals are an integral part of the legal environment and work in a variety of settings, including law firms, corporations, insurance companies, banks and government offices. Students choosing a major in the College of Arts and Sciences may pursue a Bachelor of Arts degree combined with the Paralegal Credential offered by the Paralegal Studies Program and approved by the American Bar Association. Students start work on the paralegal courses in the last year of their undergraduate studies after they have completed requirements for their major and legal studies minor. They then take eight courses in the Paralegal Studies Program (PARA) as their electives. Note: Paralegals may not provide legal services directly to the public, except as permitted by law.
