Graduates from our programs find jobs in their chosen field or go on to further their education in graduate or law school. Our political science graduates work at government agencies, business management, private law practice, non-profit foundations, humanitarian organizations, higher education and lobbying firms. Our philosophy graduates go on to careers ranging from professor to attorney, and a survey of our alumni from the past decade shows that 80 percent of our philosophy graduates have full-time employment with an average annual salary of $50,000. Because many political science, legal studies and philosophy majors intend to go to law school, our pre-law advising program prepares students for entry into top law schools; please see reverse side of this sheet for more detailed information.
LEAP is a 3+3 or 3+4 cooperative express admissions program which allows qualified students to complete core requirements and earn a bachelor's degree at Elizabethtown College and gain automatic acceptance to Drexel University's Earle Mack School of Law or Widener University's School of Law.
