Courses offered:
Criminal Justice Study Abroad (CJST 4536)
The course affords students the opportunity to explore a number of foreign criminal justice systems. This course will provide an in-depth analysis of current theory, research, and practice issues from countries around the world. Different perspectives on criminal behaviors, actions and motivations will be seen through the prism of foreign culture. In addition, this particular section will emphasize the Criminal Justice System in Italy. Therefore, the text and lectures will be supplemented with Italian guest speakers and readings on specific research conducted in Italy.

Ethnography (CJST 4439)
Studying abroad affords students the opportunity to immerse themselves into another culture. This opportunity is the perfect setting for students to learn how to conduct ethnographic research. Ethnography is a form of research in which the ethnographer (researcher) immerses him/herself into another community for the purpose of describing human conditions within the community of interest.
