Note on Criminal Law Courses: Students whose program planners call for them to take CRIM 151 should substitute CRJU 340 in its place if they have not yet taken CRIM 151. However, students whose program planners call for CRJU 340 (i.e., students declaring the CJ major in or after 2008) must take CRJU 340; CRIM 151 will not be substituted for CRJU 340 since the new criminal law class is an upper-division course one and CRIM 151 was a lower-division course.
