UW-Stout's B.S. degrees in Applied Social Sciences, Business Administration, Human Development and Family Studies, or Psychology can prepare you to apply to law schools when following recommended coursework.

There is no single set of courses which specifically prepares someone for law school and a subsequent legal career. The Official Guide to U.S. Law Schools encourages pre-law students “to fill your undergraduate curriculum with broad, diverse, and challenging courses.” UW-Stout’s general education requirements provide students with an opportunity to take such classes during their freshman and sophomore years.
