The legal studies undergraduate program at UCF offers students the opportunity to investigate many questions essential to an understanding of the legal system and the role of attorneys and legal assistants. All faculty members have law degrees and have experience as practitioners. As a professional program, legal studies incorporates a liberal arts orientation in its own courses and requires that students take supporting courses from other programs.
Students who have completed the Foreign Language Admissions Requirement (two years of high school or one year of college course work) have the option of pursuing either a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Legal Studies. Students pursuing the B.A. must demonstrate proficiency in a foreign language equivalent to one year in college. Students pursuing the B.S. must satisfy six credit hours from the approved list of courses.
