Minor in Criminology/Criminal and Juvenile Justice
The Criminology/Criminal and Juvenile Justice minor is available for ALL students, regardless of major. The courses aim to have students develop an understanding of the criminal and juvenile justice system and criminal behaviors through a social justice lens. This lens allows students to recognize the impact of the justice system on vulnerable and marginalized populations and offers a critical reflection of the ways in which evidence-based intervention and sensible social policy can reduce criminal justice involvement. The School of Social Work and Arts and Science will offer experiential learning opportunities to apply skills within criminal and juvenile justice settings, with adviser approval, which will count towards the minor requirements.
A minimum of 18 hours, comprised of the courses below, is required to complete the minor. Students must have a 2.0 minimum GPA to apply for and earn the minor. Note that students must earn a grade of C- or higher in all courses and a maximum of 6 credit hours from transfer institutions may be applied toward the minor.
