Click here to apply by October 23!

The Center for Law, Justice & Culture invites Ohio University undergraduate students from all majors to apply for the Certificate in Law, Justice & Culture.

The certificate program brings together interdisciplinary coursework from African American Studies, Anthropology, Criminology, English, History, Interdisciplinary Arts, Political Science, Social Work, Sociology, and other departments across the social sciences and humanities to provide students with intellectual training in a “law and society” perspective.

It also provides opportunities for faculty mentoring through research projects, internships, study abroad, and career guidance.

Enrollment in the certificate program is a competitive process modeled after selection for law and graduate schools. Students with an overall GPA of 3.4 or above are eligible for 25 slots per year.

During the fall application cycle, students are asked to submit a statement of intent as well as a current transcript. Those who do not meet the GPA requirement may submit an optional essay explaining their qualifications.

Once accepted into the program, Law, Justice & Culture students enroll in LJC 2000. They are then required to take at least one LJC elective course outside of their majors to ensure that they are exposed to interdisciplinary perspectives.

As they proceed through the certificate coursework, LJC students participate in the intellectual life of the center and engage in practice-oriented learning opportunities such as internships and research projects, all dealing with issues of democratic governance, social justice, and human rights.

The program is appropriate for students who plan to pursue professions in law, rights advocacy, justice administration, public policy, government, nonprofit organizations, and academic research and teaching.
