Misericordia also offers a Pre-Law Specialization for a powerful focus on law and a legal career:

For those students majoring in History, English, Philosophy, or Medical Health Humanities (MHH), there is also a Pre-Law Specialization that adds an additional career-oriented dimension to their academic work – whether the student aims to attend law school or pursue a different law-related career. The Pre-Law Specialization combines coursework in any of these four majors with classes that cover a variety of legal topics, from constitutional law to courtroom drama. Classes and internship opportunities give students insights into the legal profession and prepare them for success in law school and other law-related careers.
