Program: Minor
Department of Public Policy

Neff Hall 260 ~ 260-481-6351 ~ ipfw.edu/public-policy

The minor in criminal justice offers students the opportunity to become more knowledgeable in the field of criminal justice and its policy implications. It is available to students who are enrolled in baccalaureate programs other than the Bachelor of Science in Public Affairs degree program with a major in Criminal Justice. The minor can enhance the career opportunities for liberal arts and other majors.

Each minor requires 15 credit hours of specified courses with a 2.00 grade point average.  Public Policy  majors may only double-count 6 of the required 15 credit hours in other Public Policy major or minor requirements. Students may earn more than one minor from Public Policy, but each minor must have at least 9 credit hours that are not satisfying other major or minor requirements. In addition, at least 6 resident credits must be at the 200-level or above.

An additional 9 credits of Criminal Justice electives (PPOL Jxxx) at the 300-level or above.
