Legal Studies

Learn about the interconnection and impact between law and business, government, and public administration using a multidisciplinary approach. The study of law is not an isolated field; instead, it involves many related areas such as business, political science, philosophy, economics, and social sciences. The required core courses and the General Education courses serve as a foundation for the Legal Studies program. Students select one of three program elective groups to focus their studies.

All three elective groups emphasize analytical reasoning, critical thinking, and writing. During the one-credit program capstone course, students select a project that relates to their selected elective group. Program summary information can be found here. For more information reference the online catalog here.
