Coursework includes 18 credit hours of study that enhances critical thinking and expands the students knowledge of the criminal justice system. Areas of study include law enforcement, corrections, juvenile delinquency, and the courts system. The minor is well-suited for psychology and general studies majors, and others preparing for careers in social work, mental health facilities, or numerous other careers in the justice system.

The minor is open to all eligible ISU students (except criminology and criminal justice majors) who wish to add a minor to their current program of study. Courses in the minor may satisfy some requirements in some majors, including psychology and general studies. Students should consult with their advisors before enrolling in courses to ensure suitability and plan their program of study.
