Crime, Law and Society


Mission Statement

The mission of the Crime, Law and Society minor is to provide students with the knowledge and experience necessary to understand the origins of criminal behavior, the consequences of crime for society and the legal responses societies develop to combat crime.

This interdisciplinary minor allows students to take courses in political science, sociology, psychology, philosophy and history as well as interdisciplinary courses on the topic. In addition to traditional coursework, students are required to complete an internship.
