About the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice (SCCJ)
The SCCJ prepares students for professional and research careers in criminal justice, criminology, and related fields by applying multidisciplinary and comparative social science to understand, predict, and explain crime. Our work contributes to the development of public policy within urban communities.
Using an active learning approach, the School seeks to develop students intellectually and ethically. They learn a keen appreciation for the complexities of crime and for public and private efforts to make communities safer and ensure justice.
