School of Criminal Justice

The School of Criminal Justice is concerned with the study of all aspects of crime and societal reactions to crime.

We examine political, economic and cultural patterns that shape definitions of crime and influence the policy choices about how to respond to certain categories of crime. We also study social and personal forces that lead to criminal conduct, and we analyze the organization and operation of crime control systems. Particular emphasis is placed on the interactions among the many agencies which comprise criminal justice systems and on the relationships between these systems and other facets of society.
