Most degree programs have a minimum requirement for grades and classes that you must complete to receive a degree. Often there is a limit to how many times you can take and fail the class. It is a fair idea, since they limit the amount of time and money spent on the same class.
The short answer is, so you can get a degree! The longer answer is that it allows you to develop two interests or fields of specialty. For example, I have a psychology major and a writing minor. The psychology really helps me with writing bio articles and non-fiction. College is not just job training. One purpose is to increase general knowledge, so you'll be able to look at things from many different perspectives. Many, many people end up in their minor field, or in an industry unrelated to either their major or minor. But, the knowledge and critical thinking skills they gained in college contribute to their success. To make yourself more marketable after college. For example, if you majored in business marketing - ok. If you minored in music, or art you would show a skill set that would also be useful (making gingles/commercials) that others may not have.
A degree in criminology is probably way up on the list, if not at the top. A minor in chemistry, physics, or biology would be extremely helpful and is probably necessary. Best way to find out, call a major city's police department (not 911 :) and ask around. If they have a CSI-type department, you should be able to find a spokesperson who could better answer your question.
Yes. Anybosy has the right to drop out of school as far as I know. But for you to be thinking about dropping out it is not right. If you have ever had childhood dreams of your life in 20 years you should know, nothing you plan to accomplish will be achieved without a proper education. Stay in school.
