About this Program

Certificates must contain at least nine credits of coursework that are unique to that program out of all other certificates and minors.

The certificate is open to non-majors while majors may obtain a specialization in legal history.  Students minoring in history are eligible for the certificate so long as none of their certificate courses are counted towards their minor.
