The legal studies minor is an interdisciplinary minor that gives students the opportunity to explore legal issues in a variety of ways. Some students may be interested in applying to law school upon graduation and wish to gain an intellectual base in legal studies at the undergraduate level. Others, however, have an interest in the law and, therefore, pursue the minor in order to further their interests in the subject and to complement their major—generally one in the humanities. Through a combination of business law, philosophy, and criminal justice courses, students can complete the legal studies minor. The total credits of the minor requirements are 18. Transfer course and waivers and/or substitutions could modify these credit totals.




No more than six credits may come from the courses required in the student's major or any one department.
