Humanities - Prelaw

Four MSU prelaw majors have a conversation on a sunny day in front of a Spartan statue.

Interested in a prelaw major? 

This interdisciplinary, liberal arts prelaw major is an excellent choice for students who plan to attend law school or work in government or corporate settings, but who also have an interest in the humanities and arts. 

Students work closely with their academic adviser to design a major with three core areas of five or more classes each. Students hone critical research, writing and presentation skills as they focus on areas of particular interest to them. 


Graduates with a humanities - prelaw major pursue careers in a range of industries, excelling in jobs that demand deep knowledge of arts, humanities and the law.
