The Pre-Law emphasis of the Forensic and Investigative Sciences degree provides pre-law students with a solid scientific foundation while also preparing them for success in law school. Ultimately, our goal is to empower students to more effectively practice law in arenas where science will play a critical role in the judicial process.
Our program educates and trains Texas A&M University students as the next generation of lawyers, judges and policy makers that are best able to critically evaluate scientific research and apply these concepts to the evaluation of evidence, in order to improve the application of justice for all. Many of our graduates go on to receive their Juris Doctor (JD), Master of Law or Doctor of Juridical Science degrees at top law schools.
Students are expected to complete courses in the semester they are outlined on the curriculum or with prior advisor approval. Students who deviate from the curriculum as outlined or planned with advisors may be forced to delay graduation.
