College of History and Legal Studies sets open house

SALEM, N.H. — The American College of History and Legal Studies (ACHLS), the nation’s only college dedicated exclusively to the study of history, will hold an open house Aug. 7 at the school at 1 Stiles Road beginning at 7 p.m. It will last approximately 11/2 hours.

It is open to all interested students. Refreshments will be served.

Beside its focus on history and legal studies, the ACHLS is a novel senior, or completion, college, offering only the junior and senior years of college. After their junior year, students who do well at ACHLS will be able to enter law school at the Massachusetts School of Law and receive their B.A. after the first year of law school, rather than after a fourth year of undergraduate school.

For more information, please call (603) 458-5145 or visit the ACHLS web site at www.achls.org.
