Because the Law and Society minor must be taken in combination with one or two major areas of study from either the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) or the Faculty of Science (FAS), your options for future study are as broad as you want them to be.
If you’re completing the Law and Society minor as part of a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree, you’ll have the option to pursue graduate studies in your major subject area(s), from History to English to Political Science. As well, after getting a taste of legal studies in the minor, you might decide you’d like to pursue a law degree. While a minor in Law and Society is not a guarantee that your application to law school will stand out above other applicants’, the minor will familiarize you with some of the concepts and language of law that you’ll need if you're accepted.
You might also complete the Law and Society minor as part of a Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree. If so, your major area(s) of study in science would be the logical next step for a master’s degree.
Here are some possibilities for further study:
- Juris Doctor (JD) or Bachelor of Laws (LLB)
- Master of Arts (MA)
- Master of Science (MSc)
- Master of Social Work (MSW)
