We offer a comprehensive selection of interdisciplinary degrees as part of our popular online legal studies program. Whether you’re interested in a paralegal studies degree or in pursuing an advanced graduate degree in the discipline, this program offers an impressive foundational perspective into the U.S. legal system. Students explore legal meanings, practices, and values, and they develop working knowledge of local, state, and federal laws and procedures.
