This program aims to provide a breadth of coverage for students to succeed as paralegals within any environment and allow for continued learning in workplace settings. Lander’s curriculum will also prepare a student for graduate education — including, but not limited to, law school.
A Successful Career Begins Here
Earning a bachelor’s degree in paralegal studies is an excellent option for anyone wishing for a successful career as a paralegal – in a business, law firm or government agency.
Attorneys realize that persons with a bachelor’s degree have greater writing, research, and critical thinking skills, so employers now prefer this credential, and some even require a bachelor’s degree. This shift continues the professionalization of this field by state bar associations for many years. This program will prepare graduates to work in the legal profession in private enterprises such as law firms, insurance companies, banks and mortgage companies, or government agencies as a paralegal.
Online, On Campus or Hybrid Delivery
This program is offered on Lander’s main campus in Greenwood, at the University Center of Greenville (UCG), as well as online.
Most students will pursue this program at the University Center of Greenville (UCG) and online, but all three options are available. Courses at the UCG are in a hybrid mode, but a full course load of 12-15 hours would likely involve some online courses for progress toward completing the degree in two years. Many more courses have face-to-face options on the main campus, but hybrid and online courses are offered as well.
