In the Legal Studies Program International Track students can study abroad for a semester, expanding their experience and knowledge of global legal and policy issues, while directly furthering requirements for their bachelor's degree. Students will also be immersed in the international culture, taking classes and living with students from other countries.
In partnership with universities in England, Ireland, Scotland, and Australia, legal studies students with a minimum 3.0 GPA may study abroad, preferably in the spring of their sophomore year or fall of their junior year. With the guidance of the legal studies program advisor, students select courses from a menu of choices which satisfy concentration electives, or a combination of concentration and general electives, at partnered universities abroad. Currently, partnered universities include University of Westminster in England, Dublin City University in Ireland, Napier University in Scotland, and Bond University in Australia.
Short term study abroad options are also available in the summer with two-week study abroad trips combined with online academic preparation. Students can earn 6 credits while learning about and experiencing law and culture in another country.
