The Humanities and Law Minor
The Humanities and Law minor, which is open to all UCI undergraduate students, includes courses in the humanities that former students have found to be useful in preparing them for law-related careers. The courses focus on long-term skills in critical reading, writing, and analysis, offering theoretical and applied analytical perspectives on ethical, political, and social issues. The minor does not include how-to courses on particular legal practices. The minor should not be perceived as a prerequisite for attending Law School.
Students considering a career in law are strongly encouraged to take advantage of other law-related courses across campus and of extracurricular activities such as the Pre-Law Society.
- Philosophy 29.
- Either one of the following four-course combinations: Humanities 1A-B-C (or the Humanities Core Alternative) and one course from Philosophy 4, 5, or 9 (if not used for the Humanities Core Alternative), or Philosophy 1, 4, and either 5 or 9, plus one course from Philosophy 10, 11, 12, 13, or 9 (if not taken above).
- Six courses from among a list of quarterly approved courses, at least one each from philosophy, history, and literature or classics. Consult the Humanities and Law course list for currently approved courses.
Residence Requirement for the Minor: Four upper-division courses required for the minor must be successfully completed at UCI. Two of the four may be taken through the UC Education Abroad Program, provided course content is approved in advance by the appropriate department chair.
