Hey! My bachelors degree is in biology...you need to have a technical/science background in order to take the patent bar however, the patent bar is only required for patent prosecution. I went to the open house at SCU and went to the meeting on their high tech certificate program...the dean and a 1L and 3L were there to talk about the program and also answer questions. Not one of the three had a technical/science background. I'm sure they would be happy to answer questions about that for you...If you wanted to talk to that particular dean I don't remember her name, but I'm sure I could find it for you.
Good luck with your decision. It also came down to Pepperdine, SCU, and USD for me. I finally eliminated Pepperdine due to it being way too conservative for me...but the campus is absolutely beautiful.
