Law and Politics

This track provides students with advanced coursework and training in the study of law from multiple perspectives. It serves three different groups of students. First are students who aspire to attend a highly competitive law school have the opportunity to engage in advanced study of law before applying, and to encounter a broader set of perspectives than might typically be included in a JD degree. Second, students hoping to pursue Ph.Ds. can gain relevant course work and skills development to ease that transition. Finally, the track provides other students interested in an M.A. degree with strong writing and analytical skill development.
