What will I learn?

The Criminology and Criminal Justice concentration trains students to view issues of crime, victimization, and justice through a sociological lens. A sociological perspective on these issues focuses our attention to the social aspects of crime, law, and deviance including understanding societal factors that contribute to crime, effective and innovative programmatic approaches to prevent or control crime, the unintended consequences of our system for marginalized communities, and the role of research in creating effective policy. Our undergraduate program is designed to provide students with a strong foundation in research methods, data collection, analysis, and theory, which are all essential skills for those interested in careers associated with law, justice, or advocacy—all professional paths for which this concentration prepares students well.
