The mission of the major in Humanities and the Law is to educate students in the humanities and in legal studies in order to prepare them for graduate school in law or to enter a career appropriate to an interdisciplinary, liberal arts education. This program is consistent with the core values adopted for the mission and purpose of the College (Vision 2014 Strategic Plan Strategy 1 and 4).
Humanities and the Law is Anderson University’s Pre-Law degree program. Students interested in attending law school can pursue any major, but Humanities and the Law is designed to give students experiences preparatory for a graduate education in law. This major, however, is more than a pre-professional program in law. It is also an inter-disciplinary course of study in the humanities. Students will receive an academic background which could be used in preparation for a career in government, charitable organizations, economic development or public service.
