Criminal Justice Minor

Criminal Justice Minor

Minoring in Criminal Justice involves the study of how criminal conduct is investigated, arrests are made, evidence is gathered, charges are brought, defenses are raised, trials are conducted, sentences are rendered and punishment is carried out. You’ll explore the criminal justice system within the realm of social and behavioral science. What are the benefits of community policing? What constitutes cruel and unusual punishment? How can juvenile offenders be rehabilitated? You’ll gain knowledge and skills that are important for careers in law or law enforcement as you take 24 credit hours toward a criminal justice minor in conjunction with a different bachelor’s degree major.
