In order to provide CAPS students opportunities to take electives that will allow them to focus on specific career-oriented areas, the College of Adult and Professional Studies offers a certificate in the career area of Criminal Justice. For a current listing of courses and information, please see http://www.indwes.edu/Adult-Graduate/Certificate-Criminal-Justice/.
Certificates are available to students in the baccalaureate and associate programs, and to students who are registered as unclassified students.
To be awarded the Certificate, a student will need to take 15 credit hours from the selected courses in the specified certificate area. Degree-seeking students must earn at least nine of the 15 credit hours at IWU. (Six of the credits may be earned through transfer of courses from an accredited institution, through credit by examination, or through an IWU Assessed Learning Portfolio.) Unclassified students must complete all 15 credits through IWU to be eligible for a certificate. A grade of "C" or better must be earned in each course. The Certificate area will be noted on the transcript.
The Certificate requires any combination of Criminal Justice (CRJ) courses, ADC-210 Addictions Theory, SOC-246 Criminology, PSY-250 Developmental Psychology, or PHE-365 Alcohol and Drug Education.
