Combining Law and Public Administration studies, the department deals comprehensively with the theories and practices important to both fields. This is an approach as yet untried by other universities. Through detailed and comprehensive studies in legal sciences and public administration, our graduates will gain expertise in various issues related to political, economic, and social organizations. The department also enables students to prepare for the bar and other exams, as well as the acquisition of a variety of certificates in legal and public administration.
The department provides student-centered learning in a nurturing environment, integrates teaching and service, and offers relevant, high quality courses which prepare students for careers and lifelong learning. A course in Criminal Evidence is available through the Criminal Justice Department of Chowan University (North Carolina, U.S.A.). We encourage our students to pursue a variety of professional certifications, and provide support to those who wish to continue their studies at the graduate level. Personal and academic networks are established and a study help system is operated in order to maximize student success.
