The Criminal Justice (CJ) concentration is a "generalist" concentration and is intended for students seeking a traditional criminal justice education. The curriculum focuses primarily on the substance of criminal justice institutions and crime and does not require many of the analytics and computer-based courses that the other two concentrations require. Because the Criminal Justice concentration reserves 41 free electives, it is the most flexible of the three concentrations, allowing students to double major or take on a minor, while still reserving enough free credit for other courses of interest outside the program. THE CURRICULUM While the CJ concentration is the least analytically demanding of the three concentrations, it still offers the community-based learning and global perspectives of the other two concentrations. Students in all three concentrations are encouraged to participate in at least one faculty-led study abroad program, during which students explore various justice-related themes (examples of recent trips: The Legacy of Nazi Policing and Cold War Justice in Munich and Prague and The Roots of Common Law Justice in London).
