Program Information

School:University of Waterloo
Faculty:Faculty of Arts
Degree:Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study:Legal Studies, General
Description:Law is central to everything we do - how we carry on business, how we treat the environment, how we shape our governments, how we deal with other people. Whether you choose to major in Legal Studies or take an option in Legal Studies and Criminology, you can choose from a wide range and variety of courses in Accounting, Environmental Studies, History, Peace and Conflict Studies, Philosophy, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology to focus on almost any aspect of the field.

The Legal Studies degree may be for you if you who wish to develop a broad understanding of the impact of the law and the legal system upon society through legislators, courts, regulatory agencies, business and law enforcement agencies. If you want to pursue further legal studies, the degree will offer areas of specializations which are unique to the University of Waterloo . These two unique specializations, Financial Regulation and Personal Finance, address perceived deficiencies in the educational background of the largest proportion of law students who continue to come from a liberal arts background. The Legal Studies Degree will provide you with a comprehensive undergraduate education in legal studies. If you are coming to university with already formed career aspirations, this program will provide an excellent academic background to your further studies or training.
