EIU Interdisciplinary Criminology Minor

The Interdisciplinary Criminology minor allows students to select either criminal justice or criminal administration as options. The curriculum is composed substantially of coursework from Political Science and Sociology, but Business, Economics, Philosophy and Psychology also contribute relevant and important courses. Strengths of the program include the diversity of departments, the wide range of courses and topics, and the student's discretion to select from among those courses. The minor emphasizes the theoretical and conceptual contexts that will complement the practical training of police academies, but the relevance of the minor goes well beyond the practice and profession of law enforcement. An important goal of the minor also is to broaden students' understanding of issues and challenges associated with law enforcement's role in a democratic society.
