Criminal Justice Minor
Criminal Justice minors enhance their major degree program with academic and experiential learning opportunities in law, criminology, leadership, juvenile delinquency, crime theory and more.
Students with an interest in criminal justice who have selected a different major may stoke their interest with a minor in CCJ. The CCJ minor is a successful compliment to several programs on campus, including but not limited to psychology, political science, business, and nursing.
CCJ Minors will complete 33 credits in the CCJ program. This includes 19 required credits for all minors, and 16 upper division credits (4 classes) selected by the student.
Some Criminal Justice minor students will prepare for their intended career through a major degree, while pursuing Social Science interests with a their minor. Other students may pursue a Criminal Justice minor to provide specific specialization to compliment their major. A Criminal Justice minor may provide the foundation for a very successful career.
