There is no minor in criminology.

Students who major in criminology and minor in sociology may only apply SOCI 101D to both; all other courses in the sociology minor must be different from those courses applied to the criminology major.

For students majoring in criminology, all courses that may apply to the major requirements are included in the determination of the grade point average in the major.
