This fall we began offering an “Ethics and Law Option” within our undergraduate major. This is an excellent opportunity for pre-law students and others interested in ethics and law. 

The option includes a course in philosophy of law, two courses in applied ethical and legal issues, and two courses in the foundations of ethics and law. Through these courses, students will understand key legal concepts, develop their skills in applying principles to particular cases, and learn about the foundations of ethics and law through classic and contemporary authors.  A course in logic develops skills in logical reasoning, which is central to the study of law and the LSAT. 

With the Ethics and Law Option selected, the major totals 30 credit hours and satisfies a number of ACE credits and distribution requirements within the College of Arts and Sciences. If you are interested or would like to learn more, contact Sarah Feit at
