Program Overview

A minor in Criminal Justice helps students learn about various aspects of the criminal justice systems and crime. Students may choose to focus on a particular part of the system or learn about many aspects to include law enforcement, corrections, and the administration of justice. The minor is a great addition for students whose careers may have them interact with those in the criminal justice system including Biology, Chemistry, English, Political Science, Psychological Sciences, Social Work, Sociology, and more.
