Students who wish to pursue a specialty in law in relation to a specific scientific, technological, environmental, medical, or media field (such as health policy or intellectual property on the Internet), legal field (such as environmental law, criminal law, or international law), or interdisciplinary thematic field (such as gender studies) may count up to 9 credits of advisor-approved courses in that field toward the electives requirement for the major. For example, a student interested in environmental law might take HIST 334 Environmental History of North America and 6 credits of courses in environmental science and/or environmental policy for elective course credit in the major.​


Every course in this category must be approved by the LTC Advisor. Other law-related classes at NJIT and/or Rutgers that are not designated in this list may be used to satisfy the 18 credits of Law-Related Electives. The Rutgers Law School faculty occasionally offer classes open to undergraduates that can be used to satisfy these credits. 

(4) Six credits of focused senior coursework: HSS 404 Humanities Senior Seminar - History, in which students prepare a project or write a thesis in a relevant field, and HIST 310 Co-op in Law, Technology, Culture and History I, which provides a hands-on, law-related experience as an intern in a law firm, non-profit or government agency, science- or technology-based corporation, or other relevant organization.
