New College-Social Science with a Prelegal Focus

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Program Information

Students may elect a sequence of courses designed to provide them with the skills and general knowledge suitable for undertaking the study of law. These courses, taken with the guidance of the New College prelegal adviser, include work in the social sciences, humanities and natural sciences and research writing and communication skills.

Specifically, students ordinarily complete a discipline focus in political science courses consisting of American Politics, The Constitution, American Political Theory and an elective political science course. In addition, students must complete one course each in basic economics, psychology and American history. The following are also recommended: Law and the American Legal Process, Logic, Ethics, Statistics, The Essay and Environmental Science.

NOTE: these recommendations are fully consistent with both the New College distribution requirements and the Social Science area requirements, all of which must be satisfied by students pursuing this elective focus.
