Crime, Law & Society Minor

Go beyond "true crime" podcasts and proceedural "law & courtroom" binges. 

Dig deeper into the study of real-world crime and justice with our Crime, Law & Society minor. This dynamic program takes you beyond the crime scene and courtroom, and into the exploration of the sociology, psychology, history, and politics that shape crime and its impact.

But this isn't just classroom theory. This minor gets you out there, with a required internship placing you face-to-face with the systems and people navigating crime and law:

  • Charleston County Sherrif's Office
  • City of Charelston Police Department
  • Department of Juvenile Justice
  • Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Sevices
  • Medical University of South Carolina Forensic Pathology Office
  • Public Defender's Office
  • Victim Services
  • and many more

You'll gain critical thinking skills and prepare for possible careers in law, government, and social policy while you question, analyze and engage in the pursuit of a more just society.
