Criminal Justice Minor

Criminal justice is one of our most popular academic programs. There are plenty of reasons why the criminal justice program enjoys such a strong reputation such as research opportunities, internships, diverse faculty, and flexible class times. With an array of specifications, criminal justice examines the scientific study of decision-making processes, operations, and the justice system.

Students who minor in criminal justice will have the opportunity to take many similar courses that are offered in the major in order to obtain a better understanding of the American legal institution and its justice agencies as well as its practices, policies, and procedures.

Our students can use their knowledge in Criminal Justice to:

  1. Improve the Justice System - by communicating the results of criminal justice concepts and criminological theories to articulate methods and strategies to improve our justice system.
  2. Advance the Scientific Basis - exercise reasoned judgment to advance the scientific basis of criminal justice practices, policies and procedures by identifying and evaluating research needs and priorities of our justice agencies.
  3. Promote Ethical Principles and Practices - demonstrate social and personal responsibility by evaluating evidence, acting ethically, and reflecting the values that are the underpinnings of criminal justice as an academic discipline.
