Criminal Justice Minor

Why Minor in Criminal Justice?

A Criminal Justice minor may be particularly attractive to students who seek to augment their major field of study with a basic knowledge of criminology/criminal justice. The minor requires that a student take a minimum of 18 credits hours of CRJU-labeled coursework, including CRJU 0101 - Introduction to Criminal Justice. CRJU 0101 is a prerequisite for all 200-level and above criminal justice courses, and is one of only two 100-level courses offered by the department. Students desiring to minor in Criminal Justice shall be required to declare their minor intention, and therefore be assigned to and meet with an advisor, prior to the taking of a third CRJU course that shall be applied to the minor program of studies.
