Your Law and Society degree is a broad-based interdisciplinary study in the humanities and social sciences. That means that it provides a solid foundation for many career options, including public service, law enforcement, health care, social services, and legal administration.
A number of Law and Society Ramapo graduates enter law school each year including New York Law School, Rutgers School of Law, John Jay College and Syracuse University. Ramapo also offers a joint B.A./J.D Degree with Seton Hall Law School; this guaranteed admissions program is designed so that high achieving high school students who meet outlined criteria can be accepted to Ramapo and be guaranteed admission to Seton Hall Law School four years later.
