Are you interested in a Criminal Justice degree, but aren't able to come to Laramie to complete it? You are in luck! In collaboration with community colleges and other partners, we offer our degree program through distance. What does a degree from distance mean? While we have some courses that are entirely on-line, we have others that utilize Zoom technology so you are in a virtual classroom. This way you can take courses from across the world as long as you have internet connectivity!
The minor requires 18 hours to be completed from approved courses. Of these 18 hours, 12 must be upper division (3000 or 4000 level). In addition, 12 of the 18 hours must be outside the student’s primary major, and none of these courses may be credited toward both the minor and the USP requirement. Pre-Law Minors must complete one course from each category. All coursework must be completed with a grade of “C” or better to be counted toward the minor.
