Minor in Criminal Justice

Kutztown University students can minor in criminal justice, which provides our students with a solid understanding of the origin, aims, operation, and impact of the criminal justice system. Students from a variety of majors (for example, psychology, sociology, history, computer science and social work) have selected criminal justice as a minor, as the minor provides increased opportunities for employment. Also a number of students have minored in criminal justice and then gone on to earn master's degrees in criminal justice.

The minor requires students to complete CRJ 010: Introduction to Criminal Justice, as well as five other criminal justice courses. Half of these courses must be at the 200-level or above; and, at least half of the eighteen credits must be taken at Kutztown University.
