Criminal Justice

The criminal justice minor is designed to prepare students for a career in the field of criminal justice, e.g. police work, probation/parole or corrections. In addition, the criminal justice minor is provided for students whose major department requires a minor.

The Criminal Justice minor provides a background for students interested in a career in the field of criminal justice or a related area. Federal law enforcement, state and local police work, probation and parole (juvenile and adult), and corrections are all criminal justice careers. For the student interested in a criminal justice career, a major in Sociology, Psychology, or Rehabilitation Science will enhance their credentials for employment in the expanding criminal justice arena.
