What I Love Most About DWU:
Want to pursue an internship? As a student studying history, you have lots of options. Former Dakota Wesleyan history students have held internships at the national, state and local levels. Chat with your adviser to see how you can find an internship to gain the experience you need.
Interested in Law School?
Law schools are looking for students with reading comprehension, critical thinking skills, analytical reasoning and clear communication. When considering majors and minors, desirable areas of emphasis are communications, history, political science and economics.
At DWU, we'll support you in your preparation of the Law School Admission Test (LSTAT). The Association of American Law Schools does not have a specific list of required courses or extracurricular activities. Tell your adviser you would like to pursue law school.
