Paralegal Programs Offered
Pima Community College offers an Associate Degree and a Post-Degree Certificate program in paralegal studies. Both programs are approved by the American Bar Association.
Program Schedule and Requirements
The associate degree program offered by the college consists of 66 credit hours and will take approximately two years to complete. The degree has 24 required core credit classes, 15 specialty area elective credit hours, 27 credit hours of required support courses, including a humanities and social science requirement, English requirement, and math requirement.
Students may sign up for classes during the fall, spring, or summer semesters. However, it is important to note that not all of the specialty courses are offered every semester. For this reason it is important to plan your courses accordingly to make sure that you meet all of the course requirements for the program.
The degree requires that students complete an internship. This internship is designed to give the student a real world work experience through a site that has been approved by the school. The internship is completed during the final semester of course work and students must apply and be accepted to the internship program.
