The department of criminal justice studies was established at the University of Minnesota in 1968; three years earlier, the Minnesota Legislature appropriated funds to establish a law enforcement educational program at the University. The department's initial focus was in police administration and did not employ any full-time faculty members. In 1970, the department became a part of the College of Liberal Arts, after spending its first two years without being a member of any college on the campus. In 1973, the criminal justice studies major, available to all University students, was approved. The department was phased out in 1980 with faculty and courses being transferred to other departments.
