Department Information

The law and justice curriculum is designed to provide a broadly based foundation in law and justice from a social science and liberal arts perspective (rather than to focus on a police or corrections training experience). Core courses are designed to provide a foundation in the discipline; approved elective courses provide opportunities to develop a broad perspective on social and legal issues.

Department Standards

Admission to the Major and to the Minor

  1. Grade requirement: overall grade point average of 2.25 or higher. The department chair may admit a limited number of students with grade point averages under 2.25 under extenuating circumstances.
  2. Students applying to the major must submit a major application form signed by a faculty advisor.
  3. The law and justice department reserves the right to modify these requirements in special cases or as the needs of the department change. 

Exit Requirements

A minimum grade of C- must be earned in all courses used to fulfill the requirements of the major and of the minor.
