LEARN BY DOING...IN THE LAB, THE LIBRARY, OR THE FIELD
At WSU you get priceless research and laboratory experience.
WSU science graduates report that their laboratory skills more than match those of other new employees with degrees from other top schools. There are plenty of opportunities to get experience working in faculty research labs. And it's not just lab work; you could do hands-on field work in anthropology, ecology, zoology, and more.
Motivated students in social sciences, humanities, and liberal arts have opportunities to add to scholarship in their field, with guidance from faculty scholars. Research centers like the Foley Institute for Public Policy, the library's Manuscripts, Archives, and Special Collections department and more give you access to resources not available just anywhere.
Check out student research achievements in the College of Agricultural, Human, and Natural Resource Sciences, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the neuroscience program.
INTERESTED IN A LAW CAREER?
Pre-law students can choose any major at WSU.
Whatever major you choose, the key in pre-law study is to develop strong skills in reading, researching, writing, and critical analysis. History, philosophy, English, political science, and related majors in the liberal arts and humanities are popular choices for pre-law study because they are built around those very skills.
WSU offers plenty of opportunities for pre-law students to shine. For instance, at least one WSU mock trial team has advanced to a national tournament every year since 2006.
