Description:

The minor in Criminology and Criminal Justice allows students in other undergraduate programs
at ASU to explore issues of crime, law and the criminal justice system. The minor provides
students with the tools to analyze complex issues and policies within the criminal justice system,
enhancing students’ ability to understand the nature of crime and the system response to law
breaking. In addition to the three required courses, which provide a solid understanding of the
field, each student will be able to select electives to meet his or her specific interests. Students
should meet with a School of Criminology and Criminal Justice advisor prior to registration.
