ETBU dives deeper into the benefits of studying humanities

East Texas Baptist University’s School of Humanities seeks to communicate the practical application of its degree programs to prospective students. This year, the department added an Introduction to Law course to meet the needs of pre-law majors who are anxious about the transition from undergraduate studies to law school, and to provide a way for students interested in law to familiarize themselves with the profession in a more general way.
