Master of Arts in Legal Studies | M.A.

Legal Studies

The master of arts with a major in legal studies is the first degree of its kind in Texas and is one of only a few in the United States. The degree provides students interested in law at a graduate level with an understanding of the American legal system, legal theories, legal analysis, legal research and legal writing. Students use this knowledge to pursue career opportunities in law, government or business, as well as career enhancement in law-related fields and as a background for further graduate work in law or related fields.

Both the M.A. and paralegal studies programs have been approved by the American Bar Association and offer graduate instruction. These programs do not qualify persons to practice law.
