If you are enrolled in a four- or five-level program (with the exception of the Medical Radiation Sciences program which is a three-level program offered over a four-year period), you are eligible to obtain a Minor in Justice, Law and Order. Please note that in order to declare a Minor in Justice, Law and Order, at least 12 units (above Level I) must be elective to the degree.
In the final year of your program, when you complete your profile in the online Graduation Information Centre, you must indicate your desire to receive a Minor in the chosen subject. The Faculty Reviewing Committee will verify that the requirements have been met. If you are successful, your transcript will contain a designation for Minor in that area.
