Undergraduate Curriculum

A typical bachelor’s degree program in each of these colleges consists of four parts: Marquette Core Curriculum (MCC) requirements, college curriculum requirements, major requirements and electives. In the first three years of the Pre-Law Scholars program, students complete the Marquette Core Curriculum, college curriculum requirements and major requirements. Courses taken in the fourth year (the first year of law school), count as electives for the bachelor’s degree and toward the completion of the law degree.
