Criminal Justice

How do we begin to understand crime? What drives human deviance? What are the most effective methods of correction, and how does lawmaking support these systems? In studying Criminal Justice, you’ll use an interdisciplinary, social sciences-based approach to learning about the criminal justice system. Along with building a deep awareness and understanding of law and policy, you’ll learn how to communicate effectively, develop cross-cultural understanding, give and receive feedback, and collaborate with others.
