Are you interested in studying crime, criminals, and the criminal justice system? Consider adding a minor in Criminal Justice.

    • 12 credit hours

    This minor consists of four courses (12 credit hours) chosen from a selective list of 300-400 level criminal justice electives. However, there are two prerequisites before taking upper-level criminal justice courses: CRJS 215S Introduction to Criminology, and CRJS 222 The Criminal Justice System.

    Talk with an ODUGlobal enrollment coordinator to determine if you have credits that will transfer.
