Criminal Justice Frequently Asked Questions
Find answers to your questions in these FAQ's.
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.
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.
