Criminal Justice Minor

All Criminal Justice courses, with the exception of Introduction to Criminal Justice (CJ-1002) are reserved for CJ majors, meaning unless you are a CJ major, you cannot take any other CJ courses. Students minoring in Criminal Justice are the only exception. Students completing any undergraduate degree program are eligible to complete the Minor.

How do I complete a CJ Minor?

To complete a CJ Minor you have to take 18 credit hours of Criminal Justice courses in total, the equivalent of six 3 credit hour courses. You must take these courses: Introduction to Criminal Justice CJ-1002(3); Foundations of Criminal Justice CJ-2100(3); and Criminal Law CJ-2130(3). These three courses equal 9 credit hours. Then, you must take 9 more elective credit hours in Criminal Justice (or three more 3 credit hour classes). These can be chosen based on your own interest and course availability.

How do I enroll in CJ courses as a CJ Minor?
