Criminology, Law and Society, Minor
The minor in Criminology, Law and Society is designed to provide students with an overview of the American legal system and in-depth focus on the regulation of behavior, the problem of crime, and responses to crime within this system. Students explore these topics through multiple disciplinary perspectives, including anthropological, economic, historical, political, and sociological approaches to the study of law, behavior, and institutions of social control.
