The prelaw major is designed to prepare students for law school. The curriculum seeks to provide necessary course content and to develop thinking and analytic skills needed to perform well on the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) and in law school. The application of legal training is endless and go well beyond the traditional practice of law. While Christians are needed in all aspects of law, our students will find legal training beneficial in a variety of non-vocational and missional endeavors as well.

Liberal Arts Core

The faculty of Cedarville, and particularly the faculty of the Department of History and Government believe in the value of the liberal arts core.  We want our graduates to be educated individuals, not just trained employees.  We recognize that both education and training are vital,  and we are convinced that in this day and age college graduates need to know how to learn as much as they need to know how to do a task.  The career experts suggest that graduates of colleges today will change careers 4-5 times in their lifetimes.  Those shifts require a certain set of skills that the liberal arts courses help to develop in our students.
