The Legal Studies minor is an interdisciplinary minor, including courses from disciplines such as economics, criminal justice, business, communications, political science, and anthropology. The minor is aimed at students who wish to pursue legal careers that do not require a law degree (i.e. paralegals), or who may wish to work in a variety of settings (law firms, corporations, government agencies, etc). They may also pursue careers in business, banking, or real estate.
Students who complete the Political Science or Criminal Justice major may count up to six hours of credit from the major toward the Legal Studies minor.
