You learn to identify the psychological and sociological factors that drives an individual to crime and how the criminal justice system is applied. In your third and fourth year, you develop your analytical and critical thinking skills by designing your own research project. This is an opportunity to use various qualitative and quantitative research methods to prepare for graduate studies and advanced career opportunities within the criminal justice field.
