As a pre-law student, Black Hills State University offers you an excellent opportunity to develop the basic skills and insights required of successful law students and practicing attorneys. Whether you choose to major in business administration, history, human services, political science, sociology, or social science, BHSU offers majors and minors which are both rigorous and meaningful. Our graduates have been accepted to and graduated from law schools throughout the country.
The Association of American Law Schools emphasizes that no single course of study is required for admission to law school. Rather, the Association stresses the importance of a “broadly based undergraduate program that includes training in analytical reasoning and writing.” Specifically, the Association recommends courses in the following areas: English language and literature; political science; American history; macro and microeconomics; statistics; accounting; computer science; and a host of other fields. In short, it is less important which college major the pre-law student chooses than that he or she choose a major of “intensity and depth” that demonstrates his or her “capacity to perform well at an academically rigorous level.”
