Students who wish to minor in criminology and criminal justice should contact the chair of the department as early as possible, but no later than the beginning of the junior year, to discuss student interests and the best timing of courses to fit those interests. A prospectus will be submitted at that time which includes a statement outlining the student’s interests in the area and a schedule which will allow successful completion of the course requirements. Post facto completion of the minor may not be approved.
