What is an undergraduate pathway in law? This particular curriculum is geared toward helping individuals develop a basic understanding of the laws and rules that regulate society and govern social behavior. Laws vary significantly from place to place, and while a higher degree program may require students to choose one area of focus, the pathway program may give participants a broader understanding of the law in general. In addition to teaching the theories of law, courses may be broken down into statutes of religious and civil origin.

Successful graduates of this program tend to have enviable skill sets and desirable characteristics. Participants may possess deep reasoning capabilities, strong communication skills and excellent problem-solving abilities. Each of these skills can serve them well in several career fields and in day-to-day life.

The cost of a pathway program varies greatly, and factors such as the location of the school and the duration of the program may affect the overall cost of tuition. Additionally, students need to consider living expenses when budgeting for school.  

Though graduates of this program usually go on to pursue a bachelor’s and then master’s degree in the area of law, some may decide to go ahead and start their careers. Those who do may discover that several fulfilling positions are available to them. Some may go on to become legal secretaries, paralegals or social workers, while others may pursue careers in the field of criminal justice as probation officers, corrections officers, forensic analysts or police officers.

Several schools offer pathway programs in the field of law, but at which school a person decides to attend depends on his or her budget and geographic location. Online schools often offer the most convenient option. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
