Law and Society Minor


Law and Society is an interdisciplinary minor that explores the complexity and interrelationship of legal, social, and ethical issues in their historical context.

The minor focuses on the relation of the law to political, economic, and social conflicts, and examines how the law both reflects and defines basic social values. The interdisciplinary content of the program offers UC San Diego students the opportunity to examine law-related issues from the perspectives of a broad range of disciplines.

Courses from the following departments and programs are included in the minor: Anthropology, Communication, Critical Gender Studies, Economics, Environmental Studies, Ethnic Studies, History, Linguistics, Philosophy, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, and Urban Studies and Planning.
