What is the B.A. in Law and Society?


The B.S. in Law and Society was developed to meet the demand for leaders who have a solid understanding of law and how it intersects with our societies in every aspect of our personal and professional relationships. While the program is hosted in the Political Science department, expertise and specialization come from many other disciplines, including (but not limited to):

  • Cincinnati Law School
  • Sociology
  • Environmental Studies
  • History
  • Paralegal Studies
  • Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies
  • Business
  • English
  • Journalism

This multidisciplinary approach allows you to customize your degree not only by selecting one of many pathways for degree completion, but also through the consideration of a double major.
