The minor in criminal justice offers you the opportunity to become more knowledgeable in the field of criminal justice and its policy implications. It is available to students who are enrolled in baccalaureate programs other than the Bachelor of Science in Public Affairs with a major in criminal justice. The minor can enhance the career opportunities for liberal arts and other majors.
Each minor requires 15 credit hours of specified courses with a 2.00 grade-point average, and none of the courses may be taken by correspondence through the Division of Continuing Studies. SPEA majors may only double-count 6 of the required 15 credit hours in other SPEA major or minor requirements. Students may earn more than one minor from SPEA, but each minor must have at least 9 credit hours that are not satisfying other major or minor requirements.
