Minor in Business Law

The Minor in Business Law is housed in the Department of Marketing: Stephens Hall 123, 410-704-3357.

The Minor in Business Law in the College of Business and Economics prepares its students with the knowledge and skills they need for a productive business career or successful legal study. In an increasingly complex business world and regulatory environment, businesses and consumers need more than a passing acquaintance with the law and legal issues. Business law students study law from a business perspective to help them appreciate how legal issues affect business decision making. In addition, the business law minor contributes to students’ critical thinking, communication and leadership skills development.

This 18-unit minor is available to students who have a major other than Business Administration with a CBEI concentration. The Business Law minor normally takes 4 terms to complete.

  • At least 12 units of the Minor must be completed at Towson University.
  • No more than 3 units of upper (300-400) level courses may be taken as part of Study Abroad.
  • All courses must be completed with a grade equivalent of 2.00 or higher.
