If you have an interest in combining a humanities undergraduate degree with the study of law, the Honors Law Program at Illinois Tech is a phenomenal opportunity for you.

The best part is, if you are accepted into the undergraduate program here at Illinois Tech, you’re automatically guaranteed admission into the Chicago Kent College of Law, provided you maintain a GPA of 3.25 and receive a score on the LSAT that is at or above the median score for the Chicago-Kent entering class.

Program at a glance

As an undergraduate, if you major in Humanities or Communications you can participate in the accelerated 3 + 3 program. This means that you would complete your major requirements during your first three years of undergraduate studies. Then, should you meet the requirements listed above, you can enroll in Chicago-Kent College of Law to begin your first year of law school. The credits you earn doing this will simultaneously serve to fulfill your fourth-year course requirement as an undergraduate. And it's not just for the Humanities. You will be learning alongside biology, chemistry, computer science, physics, and psychology majors in the Honors Law Program too. 

After graduation

The Honors Law Program, combined with a rich background in the humanities, will prepare you to work in a variety of fields:

  • Law
  • Government and politics
  • Banking and finance
