Program Overview

From the role mental illness plays in crime to the impact of drugs and alcohol on our communities, this minor examines an eclectic array of subjects that can complement a major in sociology, political science or psychology. You’ll have the flexibility to shape the program in a way that reflects your interests and enhances your professional goals, and you’ll have plenty of support and guidance from a faculty with a broad range of expertise in the criminal justice field. You will meet one-on-one with the program director and design a minor that’s right for you, choosing from a varied selection of courses such as Dispute Resolution, Sexual Violence, Organized Crime and Investigative Techniques.
