Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the same in the Law and Society Program Regulations?
- You still have to do 12 courses for a Major and 8 for a Minor.
- You still have to do LWSO 1000 and 4000 for both
- You still have a great deal of variety in the courses you can choose from
- You still cannot double-count courses for a Major in LWSO and another Major (so if you’re using SOCI 3395 to count as a required course for your Sociology major, you can’t also use it for your LWSO major)
- For the LWSO major, you still need 3 first or second level courses
- For the LWSO minor, you still need courses from at least 3 disciplines, one of which can be LWSO.
What changes are there for LWSO majors?
- You have to take 4 LWSO courses at minimum, including LWSO 1000 and LWSO 4000
- You only need one 4000-level course other than LWSO 4000 (though you are, of course, free to take another)
- You only need 4 3000-level courses
- You cannot count more than 5 courses from any one discipline (other than LWSO) for the LWSO major.
- You can only count at most two non-Humanities and Social Sciences courses, including Psychology 2150 and Business 4000 (note, there is an exception to this for students registered for the joint BA/BComm program, who can count up to 4 non-Arts courses).
- There are now two tables of possible courses. You can only count 5 of those from Table 2, but as many as you’d like from Table 1. Note – all LWSO courses are in Table 1.
What changes are there for LWSO minors?
- Now, you need to take one LWSO course in addition to 1000 and 4000
- And now you need to take at least 3 courses from the 3000- or 4000-level options, in either Table 1 or Table 2
