The Criminal Justice Minor is designed for students who want to work in law, law enforcement, corrections, victim advocacy, social services, or governmental organizations. The minor allows students to selectively focus on important foundation areas including the basics of the criminal justice system, research methods, theory, and law. This minor is a logical compliment to many majors in other social and behavioral sciences, but may be combined with any major offered throughout the university. This minor cannot be combined with a Criminal Justice Major.
