Community and Justice Studies Major

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Majors & Minors A-Z

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

The Community and Justice Studies major requires a minimum of 46 semester credit hours. No courses for the major 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 (*).


Take one of the following (4 credits):

Civic Learning Cluster:

Take three courses (12 credits) within one of the following themes. At least one four-credit course in the cluster must be at the 300 or 400 level. Students who wish to define their own focus for the Civic Learning Cluster must meet with the coordinator of the Community and Justice Studies program.

Service Leadership:

Students must hold a Service Leader position for one year (e.g. Bonner, Davies, Allegheny Volunteer Service Leader) and concurrently take COMJ 520 Connecting Action and Reflection I  during the first semester of the leadership position and COMJ 521 Connecting Action and Reflection II  during the second (1 credit each).
