Pre-professional Programs
Georgia College offers a pre-law program. There is no pre-law major per se, nor is there one particular course of study that leads to law school. While most undergraduate students who are thinking about attending law school are majoring in political science, criminal justice, or another social science, law schools accept good students with practically any undergraduate degree. The department has advisors who can offer detailed information and advice about preparing for law school. Moreover, within the political science major, the department offers a legal studies concentration that many have found to be a very useful preparation for law school or for obtaining positions in legal settings. For more information, contact the Department of Government & Sociology, 2-03 Arts & Sciences Building, Campus Box 18, Milledgeville, GA 31061(478) 445-4562.
