For more information or to add a criminology minor, please contact the advisor, Dr. Othello Harris at harriso@MiamiOH.edu

This minor offers a liberal arts curriculum organized around critical thinking and reflective study of crime, law, and justice. Coursework focuses on understanding theories of crime casualty, adult and juvenile offenders, and the social responses to crime from past to present. The minor requires the completion of an internship (SOC 440.C) in an agency, program, or institution within the criminal justice system that deals with criminal offenders. Some students building their internship experiences into employment with law enforcement and social service agencies after graduation.

The minor offers two tracks: one for the non-sociology major and another for sociology majors.
