Social and Criminal Justice Minor (SCJ)

Students earning a minor in Social and Criminal Justice explore historical and contemporary issues surrounding criminal justice. The Social and Criminal Justice focus prepares students for work within the criminal justice system or affiliated agencies by bridging the “professional” field of criminology/criminal justice with the liberal arts, specifically sociology, by offering a perspective of and experience with building a more just society.
