Faculty-led Europe: Comparative Criminology

Program Description:
This course meets during the spring semester, followed by 3 weeks traveling abroad. We will be examining criminal justice systems around the world, with emphasis on comparison to the U.S. system. We will examine specific components of the criminal justice systems, including the police, courts, corrections and crimes. The effects of globalization on crime and on criminology are quite apparent in the booming numbers of transnational crimes that are committed each year.
This course will enrich the students via intercultural awareness and intercultural experiences, along with being an integrated learning experience. The course will benefit students in their preparation for living and working in a multicultural and globalized society, as well as contributing to their life-long learning.
