Upper Division Writing
For the Honors Program, students complete a rigorous writing component during their 3L fall semester in the Integrated Criminal Practice course. Because of that writing component, students in the Honors Program are required to take only one upper division writing course. The upper division writing courses currently approved for students in the Criminal Justice Honors Program are Advanced Appellate Advocacy, Death Penalty Seminar, and Criminal Pre-Trial Practice and Procedure.
TOTAL REQUIRED FOR GRADUATION: 88 Credits
