Are You Considering Law School?
Gulf Coast State College students who wish to pursue a career in law require no particular major or transfer track of “law” studies. As undergraduates, students will be encouraged to pursue broadly based studies emphasizing analytical reasoning writing, and oral expression. Students will be expected to show a capacity to perform at an academically rigorous level. Among the many majors approved by the American Bar Association are business, computer science, economics, English, history, linguistics, math, natural sciences, philosophy, political science, psychology, and sociology.
Students may pursue a university transfer track in business, English, one of the social sciences, or follow the general education curriculum. Students are encouraged to investigate the admissions requirements of the university, baccalaureate degree, and law school they wish to attend.
