(20-50 semester hours)


Open to all majors, this minor focuses on the sociology of crime, adult offenders (including an orientation to the social scientific study of crime), a critical examination of institutions in the criminal justice system, and a consideration of recent trends in the study of crime. A crucial element of this minor is the completion of an internship in an agency, program, or institution within the criminal justice system.


With the exception of the fieldwork, courses must be taken for a grade (not credit/no-credit). Students planning to take this minor should consult with the chief departmental adviser.
