Return to Academic Divisions and Departments Return to: Academic Divisions and Departments

Because this program is interdivisional, students who minor in Community Justice Studies may complete any major to satisfy the college requirement that the major and minor be in different divisions. (Note, however, that Community and Justice Studies minors may not also minor in Values, Ethics, and Social Action).

The minor requires a minimum of 24 semester credit hours. No courses for the minor may be taken on a Credit/No Credit basis except for internships that are required to be taken CR/NC. Courses with prerequisites are marked with an asterisk (*).

Possible examples include Community Change and Activism, Public Policy, or Neoliberalism.
