Crime and Justice in a Diverse Society

College of Arts and Sciences

Program Description

In this program you will learn about sociological theories and research in the fields of criminology, gender, race, class, sexuality, and immigration, and, as a result, will be prepared to think critically about power, inequality, and marginality in the criminal justice system. This program provides specialized training in diversity issues in the U.S. criminal justice system, for both current students and non-degree seeking learners. The program can be completed in just three semesters, and even more quickly if you take more than one crime and justice in a diverse society course at a time.
