Military Science and Criminal Justice Minors Added


Clearwater Christian College announces the addition of the Military Science and Criminal Justice minors to the academic curriculum effective with the 2011-12 school year.


For over ten years, students from Clearwater Christian have been able to participate in Air Force, Army, and Navy ROTC through a cross-town agreement with the University of South Florida and each military branch. This new minor officially recognizes students’ specific academic pursuits in this area and enables them to easily show this academic specialty.


Vice President for academic affairs Mary Draper said, “The new minors in military science will allow the hard work of our ROTC cadets to be incorporated into an academic minor. We added the no-credit seminar and the one Bible minor course to add a CCC footprint to the minor. I trust this minor will be an encouragement to our ROTC students. Additionally, the new minor in criminal justice will begin in the fall with three courses being offered allowing students interested in criminal justice to take all six courses in two semesters. This fall we will be offering the two introductory courses and the research course. Our plan is to build on this minor in the future.”

The Criminal Justice minor is completely unique to Clearwater Christian and will allow students to investigate the various aspects of crime, law enforcement, and prevention. It is the college’s intention to expand this offering as an academic major in the near future. The program will be headed up by Clearwater Christian College alumnus Jared Linebach who is completing his doctorate in Forensics Psychology with Alliant International University in California.
