Criminology and Criminal Justice
A central focus of this program is to demonstrate that the problems and issues our society faces with regard to crime, and our reactions to crime, must be situated within the broader social forces that both define the issues and determine our responses to them.
It is therefore expected that criminal justice graduates will be:
Conversant with the theoretical and legal principles in criminal justice
Knowledgeable of the essential research contributions in the discipline
Capable of quantitative and qualitative research and data analysis appropriate to the discipline
Competent to assume leadership, policymaking, research, and instructional responsibilities in criminal justice.
