Did you know…?

The Philosophy major has long been recognized as excellent preparation for law school.

Statistical studies show that Philosophy majors outscore almost all others on the verbal and quantitative sections of the LSAT, GMAT, GRE and similar standardized tests.

UNCG’s Pre-Law Concentration in Philosophy is a program especially designed to meet the needs of pre-law students.

The Pre-Law Concentration in Philosophy is available through both on campus courses and wholly online for online degree  students.

The Pre-Law Concentration in Philosophy has been reviewed and strongly endorsed by distinguished law professors at UNC-Chapel Hill, Duke University and Boston University.
