Teaching minors indicated below with an asterisk (*), are state-approved programs for teacher certification for teaching at the secondary and/or elementary level.  

It is redundant to declare a major and a minor/concentration in the same field, and therefore not permitted. Please reference the Minors Matrix PDF document to verify whether a particular minor or concentration is not permitted with your selected major and/or concentration.

UW-Stout's B.S. degrees in Applied Social Sciences, Business Administration, Human Development and Family Studies, or Psychology can prepare you to apply to law schools when following recommended coursework.

There is no single set of courses which specifically prepares someone for law school and a subsequent legal career.
