Most would agree: One of the best ways to learn is by doing—it’s immersive and engaging. That’s why the centerpiece of our Criminology and Criminal Justice minor is hands-on instruction. Just like the professionals, our students hone their skills by interviewing witnesses, securing (fictional) crime scenes, and collecting evidence.
Upon completion of the Criminology & Criminal Justice minor, students will be able to:
- Describe the interrelated institutions and processes of the criminal justice system, including the basic rights guaranteed to each individual by both state and federal constitutions and laws.
- Articulate a working knowledge of qualitative and quantitative research methods by explaining the various social science methods of inquiry and use these to test specific criminological research questions.
