Law and Society (2016 - 2018)
The minor in law and society consists of five 4-point courses (20 points) completed with a grade of C or better. The requirements are as follows:
- One core course, chosen from:
- Law and Society (LWSOC-UA 1, section 001), cross-listed with politics (POL-UA 335)
- Law and Society (LWSOC-UA 1, section 002), cross-listed with sociology (SOC-UA 413)
- One course in Research Methods (SOC-UA 301, or another methods course with approval of law and society director)
- Three elective courses (see under course offerings for a list of approved electives). Students may petition the director to have other courses count toward the elective requirement.
Students majoring in sociology must take Research Methods for their major; they should take a fourth elective for the law and society minor.
With special permission, exceptional students may be allowed, in their senior year and in consultation with the director, to substitute one of the following for one of the elective courses: (1) an independent study culminating in a research paper or project, (2) an apprenticeship with a faculty member doing relevant research (with permission of faculty), or (3) a relevant graduate course (with permission of faculty).
Courses applied to this minor cannot be double-counted toward a major or another minor. The pass/fail option is not acceptable for the law and society minor.
