The undergraduate curriculum emphasizes the theme of social justice through coursework and research in the areas of criminal justice/criminology, political economy, and environmental issues and globalization. Students develop an understanding of both everyday social behavior and the structural factors that contribute to social injustice and inequality within the community, region, nation and world. Students also acquire the methodological tools to identify and critically analyze social phenomena, trends and policies. The program also helps students gain the international and intercultural knowledge they will need to understand the challenges of the 21st century.
