Undergraduate Program

Legal Studies Minor

The legal studies minor is an interdisciplinary program that gives students the opportunity to examine law from a variety of perspectives. While the minor may be useful for students who may be thinking of attending law school it is not a “pre-law” program and is open to anyone who is interested.

Students in this program will gain a better understanding of law and the multiple functions it plays in a variety of societies.

The program requires a minimum of six courses, including:

  • Two analytical techniques courses
  • One legal studies course
  • One cognate course
  • Two additional courses selected from any category

The legal studies minor can count as either a social science minor or a humanities minor depending on what courses are taken.
