Law Enforcement Minor

Interested in pursuing a career in criminal justice or forensic science? Adding the Law Enforcement minor gives you the boost you need to successfully work with local, state and federal authorities.

What You'll Study

Whether you plan to work in the criminal justice system, a municipal or state agency, or even private industry, understanding the role and responsibilities of law enforcement can put you in a position to better navigate the challenges of the legal system. This minor is a natural complement to our Criminal Justice or Forensic Science major; however, students in a variety of disciplines can benefit from the knowledge gained in this 21-hour course sequence.

As a student in the program, you will spend time in the classroom learning the history and theories of criminal justice, supplemented by hands-on learning experiences in the YSU Crime Scene Investigation Lab.
