Foreign Language   [Usually 8 credits]

Foreign Language Courses offered Fall 2014

[Usually fall & spring of sophomore year]

The foreign language requirement for all BA degrees [including Criminal Justice] calls for one year of one language (6-8 credits); or one 3000/4000 level world language course (3 credits); or being a native speaker of a language other than English (zero credit). American Sign Language I and II fulfill this requirement; however, American Sign Language does not satisfy the Global Awareness Connection.

 

Electives or Minor

Electives or a Minor

The Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice degree requires a total of 120 credits. 

The design of the major leaves about 34 to 37 credits of "free electives."  Free electives include any course you choose regardless of subject discipline or level.  You can use the free electives to complete a major or to take courses of interest to you.  After completing all of the requirements above, select free electives until you reach the total of 120 credits required for the degree.
