Grand Canyon University's Bachelor of Arts in Government with an Emphasis in Legal Studies degree combines a liberal arts interdisciplinary curriculum that includes communication and business with structure and complexity of law and government. This program is offered by the College of Humanities and Social Sciences to provide you with the opportunity to explore these dynamic disciplines to establish a foundation that naturally serves as a prelaw degree or as an entryway into public or legal service. We also infuse Christian ethics into our curriculum to help you establish a foundation for ethical decision-making.
At the heart of the Bachelor of Arts in Government with an Emphasis in Legal Studies degree program is a classical liberal arts education that inspires critical reasoning, effective communication and a strong foundation in research and writing. The program offers an introduction into American politics and government, providing a deep understanding of the constitutional foundations and the governing institutions in the federal government and how it applies to law. In addition, you examine contemporary and practical legal issues that apply to the practice of law.
