What is it about the American legal system that's so intriguing to so many people? If you're one of the many individuals who loves discovering the ins and outs of the U.S. legal system, consider majoring in legal studies.

A legal studies degree has a social science and humanities focus with a focus on law and legal issues. During your time studying, you'll focus on critical analysis, decision making, writing, reading, and research - all skills that are essential in the modern workplace. You'll also learn more about business, law, and the administration of justice, which are also qualities a future employer may be looking for.


While many legal studies majors go on to attend law school, you'll be able to find work even if you don't want to be a lawyer. With your broad knowledge, you could work as a law enforcement officer, paralegal, investigator, or teacher. Both the public and private sector can benefit from the skills a legal studies major brings to the table.
