This program prepares students to perform effectively in today’s legal and business communities with a broad-based academic curriculum emphasizing the skills, substantive knowledge, and ethics a paralegal needs to assist lawyers. This degree can be completed on a full- or part-time basis. Most major field courses are offered in the evenings. The general education courses are offered days and evenings.

Paralegal work requires discretion and independent judgment; a paralegal works under the supervision and direction of an attorney. Even though a paralegal can perform many of the tasks that have otherwise been performed by attorneys, they may not give legal advice, represent a client in court, or otherwise engage in the practice of law.
