Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Undergraduate Programs

To prepare students who wish to continue the study of law or who wish to work in a law-related profession upon graduation, students can elect English with a concentration in Legal Studies. Supplementing the College’s two-course business law sequence, the concentration provides students with courses that provide a solid foundation in constitutional law, criminal law, international law, and the emerging area of law and new media.

In August 2016, Goldey-Beacom College and Delaware Law School signed an articulation agreement offering students a pathway to law school.  This partnership outlines two options for Goldey-Beacom College students which are the 3 + 3 Early Admissions Program and the Express or Guaranteed Admissions Program (EGAP).  These options are of particular interest to students who desire a law degree.  Admissions staff and Advisors can assist students with degree program selection who wish to pursue this opportunity.

 

Program Goals:

Upon successful completion of the Bachelor of Arts in English degree, students will:

  • demonstrate a broad understanding of the study of literature, including
    • knowledge of literary genre attributes and conventions.
    • knowledge of trends and differences in a variety of literary traditions.
