Each minor provides practical and comprehensive knowledge through specialized and rigorous course requirements.

Legal Studies Minor
Not available to students pursuing bachelor of science in business administration with concentrations.

The interdisciplinary minor in Legal Studies at Ithaca College is administered by the School of Business. It includes course work from several schools of the College, and it is designed to provide a broad education in which students study law from a humanistic and social point of view.

The legal studies minor is not a pre-law program. The purpose of the minor is to allow non-business majors to develop a greater understanding of the impact of law and legal institutions on society and public policy. Students study the sources and evolution of law, the legal process, and how law functions in a complex social, political, and economic system.

The minor consists of 18 credits. The two required foundation courses introduce legal methodology including legal analysis, the Socratic method, and case-law studies. In addition, students select two courses that focus on specific applications of the law, and two courses that explore the larger social and ethical dimensions of the law. The requirements of the minor should complement and supplement the majors of students with diverse career goals.
