Progression through the Major

Please 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 summer school 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.
