The interdisciplinary Criminal Justice minor is the result of an increasing level of interest among students and faculty. Historically, this minor emerged as a result of the Sociology Department’s desire to create another avenue of opportunity for students interested in issues associated with the criminal justice field. The cross-fertilization of knowledge associated with the interdisciplinary focus offers students a unique perspective generally not found in more traditional programs of criminal justice. Available coursework for the minor is currently located in Departments of Sociology, Political Science, Psychology, Philosophy and Social Work as well as the Peace Studies Program.
