Crime, Law & Justice Studies - Minor

Minor or Concentration
A minor or other concentration, such as an option or specialization, is a secondary set of courses that can be completed as you earn a degree in your major area of study.

Criminology focuses on understanding the origins of crime, both at the individual and social level and justice studies go beyond and focus on how the law comes to be applied to individuals and groups on the basis of social characteristics. The general field of criminology and justice studies, then, tries to understand how some people gain advantage through the justice system and how some suffer substantial disadvantage, not necessarily on the basis of their criminality but on the basis of social categories and social definitions.
