Freed-Hardeman University will offer a new major in Law and Politics beginning with the Fall 2012 semester. The major will prepare students to be better informed citizens and for advanced study or careers in law, government, public service, the military and other areas, according to Dr. Stephen Morris, director of the program.
The Bachelor of Arts degree in Law and Politics examines the traditional issues of politics, such as power, liberty, equality, legitimacy and the state, with emphasis on the role of law and the legal system in their determination. “Our students will focus on developing an understanding of the relationships between government, politics and law by examining the philosophical and constitutional foundations of the American republic, its political and legal systems, and contemporary issues in both fields,” Morris said.
