Law and Society Area Studies Certificate


Return to: Academic Departments and Programs

College of Humanities and Social Sciences

Department of Sociology, Social Work and Anthropology

The Department of Sociology, Social Work and Anthropology sponsors an interdisciplinary program emphasizing the study of the relationship between law and society. 

Area Studies Application

The Law and Society Area Studies Certificate is an opportunity for students interested in law school, public administration, counseling or law enforcement-related careers, to emphasize the study of the relationship between law and society from an interdisciplinary perspective. Students must complete at least 24 credits from the courses listed below. The courses must be chosen from at least three different disciplines; no more than 12 credits may be chosen from a single discipline; and at least 15 of the 24 credits must be at the 3000 level or above. A student must maintain a 3.0 grade point average for the 24 credits. The Law and Society Area Studies Certificate is pursued in conjunction with a major, as it is not itself a degree program. Courses taken for the Law and Societies Area Studies requirements may also count toward fulfilling requirements for a major. A student's final transcript will reflect the Law and Society Area Studies Certificate upon completion of the requirements for a degree.

Note:


In addition to the courses listed above, a student may petition to substitute certain relevant courses to fulfill the area studies requirement to transfer credits from another institution.

For further information, contact Dr. Jason Leiker, (435) 797-7123, jason.leiker@usu.edu, in the Sociology, Social Work and Anthropology Department.
