Law-Related Majors

It is not unusual for pre-law students to change their minds and decide that pursuing admission to a law school is no longer their goal. If you should come to this decision, you may want to consider one of the following law-related undergraduate majors available at UNCW. Successful Seahawk alumni who have been accepted to law school have majored in the following UNCW majors:

Accounting (B.S.)
Business Administration (B.S.)

Communication Studies (B.A.)
Criminology (B.A.)
Economics (B.A.)
Elementary Education (B.A.)
English (B.A.)
Film Studies (B.A.)
History (B.A.)
International Business (B.S.)
Marketing (B.S.)
Music (B.A.)
Philosophy (B.A.)
Political Science (B.A.)
Psychology (B.A.)
Religion (B.A.)
Sociology (B.A.)

This is not an exclusive list of majors and should not limit students to focus on only these majors either to prepare for law school or to pursue a law profession without law school. At UNCW, we encourage students to choose a major that will challenge you and reflect your interests so that you can excel academically.
