The Paralegal Certificate program is designed for students who have a minimum of 60 undergraduate credits (30 credits of which must be in the liberal arts) and therefore have a strong background in general education.
The Paralegal Certificate program includes 19 credits, of which 10 credits (four courses) are required courses. Students can select from a wide array of courses for the remaining nine credits to custom-design a certificate in areas such as litigation, business law, estate administration, or healthcare law. The certificate can be completed in about a year.
See a complete list of course offerings in the Undergraduate Course Catalog.
