Minor in Criminal Justice

A minor in criminal justice is useful for those students interested in other careers that work may closely with criminal justice officials, victims, and offenders.  Students majoring in psychology, sociology and other such majors often find that when working with individuals exposed to crime, it is beneficial to acquire an understanding of how the system works.  The minor in criminal justice requires that students complete 18 credit hours in criminal justice courses in policing, law, corrections and juvenile justice.  A minor in criminal justice provides the groundwork for working closely with the criminal justice system.  Students complete the minor and then submit the signed form with their graduation application to the Office of the Registrar.
