Recognizing that law plays a critical role in our society, the legal studies minor provides courses that deepen and expand your understanding of how the legal system operates. You engage in a comprehensive exploration of the law within an interdisciplinary framework and develop a critical understanding of the myriad ways the law intersects with almost every aspect of society.

This minor can serve as a background for a variety of careers, including business, public administration, academics, government, healthcare, communication, and law enforcement. It is particularly beneficial if you’re contemplating law school or graduate legal studies.
