Rationale for
Changes or
Exceptions
:

THE LAW AND PSYCHOLOGY COURSE IS ONE THAT I THINK WOULD BENEFIT A NUMBER OF MAJORS AT UMM.  SPECIFICALLY, IT SHOULD BE OF INTEREST TO PSYCHOLOGY AND LAHS MAJORS (PARTICULARLY THOSE INTERESTED IN CRIMINAL JUSTICE).  IT MAY ALSO APPEAL TO STUDENTS PLANNING ON LAW SCHOOL.  IT ALSO ADDS TO OUR CURRICULUM BECAUSE IT PROVIDES A WAY OF DEMONSTRATING APPLICATIONS OF PSYCHOLOGY.
