Faculty from the Center for Criminal and Juvenile Justice Priorities developed a Criminal and Juvenile Justice minor that is responsive to the contemporary needs of professionals working with these systems, people who have contact with the justice system, and victims of crimes. This minor is comprised of classes across campus and prepares students with knowledge about the criminal and juvenile justice system, social justice, criminology theory, domestic violence, race and class, government, and theories of deviance.
