The Certificate in Public Law offers courses in the College of Arts and Letters with law content. Students specialize in public law to obtain multiple perspectives on the use of law to regulate social problems; to strengthen critical thinking skills; and to learn to form and defend arguments.
Students must obtain a grade of C (2.0) or better in each of the certificate courses. Up to nine units in the certificate may count towards the political science major but may not count towards the political science minor. Students may obtain the Certificate in Public Law without majoring in political science or another major in the College of Arts and Letters. Contact the Department of Political Science to enroll in the certificate program or for additional information.
