Criminal Justice

Area Certificate in Criminal Justice

Students who complete departmental requirements for a major in criminal justice and earn either a B.S. or B.F.A. degree in the College of Arts and Sciences or a bachelor's degree from another Indiana University Bloomington school are eligible for the certificate.

For a list of Optional Courses Approved for the Major and Certificate, please see the section of this Bulletin with the same name, which can be found under "Criminal Justice."

One approved optional course may count in the 300–400 Criminal Justice elective area.

Majors may substitute a course in statistical methods from another department of the College of Arts and Sciences, but in that case no course from the list of Approved Optional Courses may count toward the major. Students who are interested in pursuing this option (i.e., an alternative statistics course) must first verify their eligibility with the Department of Criminal Justice.

Non-IU degree-seeking students should contact an advisor for more information.
