The minor in justice studies from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is designed for students interested in developing an understanding of meanings of justice and injustice and analyzing controversial issues. In addition to the two required courses, which provide a solid understanding of the field, students will be able to select electives to meet their specific interests. Students emerge from this minor with skills designed to bring social justice concerns to their professional careers.

Career opportunities include human welfare and social work, law enforcement, nongovernmental organizations and other public service fields. Please note, students may only apply to a minor in combination with an existing degree program. Please speak with your academic advisor to ensure this minor is applicable with your major.

Requirements

A student wishing to pursue a specific minor should consult an academic advisor in the unit offering that minor to ensure that an appropriate set of courses is taken. The student should also consult an academic advisor in the college or department of the major to make sure the college or department of the major allows the recognition of the minor.

Note: Certain major and minor combinations may be deemed inappropriate either by the college or department of the major or minor. Courses taken as part of a minor may not count toward both the major degree and the minor. Please contact the department for more information.
