Courses (Minor)

A total of 21 credits are required to complete the criminal justice minor. To complete the CJ minor, students are required to complete the following courses:

  • CJ 110: Introduction to the Criminal Justice Process (3 credits)
  • CJ 212: Management of Criminal Justice Organizations[1] (3 credits)
  • CJ 218: Adjudication Process in Criminal Justice (3 credits)
  • CJ 270: Introduction to Criminal Law (3 credits)
  • CJ 244: Correctional Process (3 credits)
  • CJ 288: Police in Modern Society (3 credits)
  • One Upper Level CJ Course: CJ minors* should choose from the following to complete the minor (3 credits): CJ 304, CJ 315, CJ 319, CJ 328, CJ 331, CJ 332, CJ 333, CJ 340, CJ 341, CJ 346, CJ 347, CJ 348, CJ 351, CJ 352, CJ 353, CJ 354 or CJ 375.

* Due to the fact that CJ 343 must be taken in conjunction with CJ 281, it is not recommended that CJ minors enroll in CJ 343 to complete the additional upper-level CJ requirement necessary to complete the minor.  This would increase the number of credits required to complete the minor from 21 credits to 24 credits.  Additionally, CJ 358 is the senior seminar capstone course and is typically reserved for CJ majors and is not recommended for CJ minors.

[1] PA 221 (Introduction to Public Administration), which is occasionally offered by the Department of Public Administration can be substituted for the CJ 212 requirement.
