Criminal Justice Minor

The criminal justice minor provides students with an overview of the criminal justice system, including its three components-law enforcement, the courts, and corrections. In this course of study, students explore criminal law and procedure, constitutional rights of defendants, victimization, correctional theory and practice, and policing. This minor is recommended for students interested in criminology, criminal defense or prosecution, and law enforcement-related fields. This minor can be combined with any major and minor except the criminal justice major.
