Important Dates for Fall 2013
Criminal Justice Studies is Impacted
There are now stricter requirements and deadlines for becoming a Criminal Justice Studies major. This applies to current SF State students wanting to change or declare a major in Criminal Justice Studies and freshmen or transfer students applying to SF State. Please see the prospective students page for information.
Need to see an Advisor?
The Criminal Justice faculty advisors have drop-in office hours for advising - no appointments are needed unless you cannot make the regularly scheduled times. Please see the Advising page for availability and contact information. If you just need a signature from the department chair, please bring your form and unofficial transcript or DARS report to the CJ office in HSS 210. Also check out our Advising FAQ- many of your questions may be answered there.
Spring 2014 Courses
We have created a list of all the courses that will be offered next Spring that count towards the Criminal Justice Program. We expect more courses will be added as we get closer to the semester and more funding is made available. This list is also posted on the CJ website, and we will try to keep it as up-to-date as possible for your reference. Registration begins on Monday, December 9th, please check MySFSU for your registration date and time.
CJ Curriculum Update
Until further notice, you may take 8 elective courses from any of the four categories to fulfill the CJ major requirements (4 courses for the minor). You no longer have to worry about getting 2 from each category. Please choose these electives based on availability and your personal academic interests. See the department roadmaps to see the lists of possible electives. The requirements for CJ 300, CJ 323 or 330, and CJ 680 remain the same. *Please note: you must have a minimum of 40 upper division units to graduate, so you may need to take upper division courses (300+) outside the major to fulfill the requirement.
