Progression through the MajorPlease keep the following requirements in mind as you select courses to progress through the justice studies major. Students should expect to take at least 4-5 semesters to finish the major. We offer very little in the summer so students should not expect to use the summer to reduce this time schedule.
- JUST 200 is a prerequisite for all JUST courses.
- JUST 200 may NOT be taken during the same semester as any other JUST designated course.
- You may enroll in a 200 level JUST foundation course(s) for the following semester while you are enrolled in JUST 200.
- JUST 200 and a track foundation course are requirements for all 300 level courses.
- All majors must complete 6 elective courses designation for their track. Only two of these electives may be non-JUST designated courses.
