International Crime & Justice
Academic Term and Year
Hamline Plan Letter
Area of Study
Goals: Introduce students to both the rates and definitions of crime and administration of justice from a global perspective. Content: This course presents an introduction to crime and criminal justice systems in a global perspective. We compare crime and criminal justice in the United States to countries around the world to understand the interconnections between culture, politics, crime, and the administration of justice. Beyond this, we focus on inherently international (and contentious) issues in criminal justice including globalization, terrorism, drug trafficking, war crimes, human rights, and the International Criminal Court (ICC). Prerequisite: CJFS 1120 or LGST 1110 or SOC 1110, or instructor permission. Students seeking a major in political science are invited to explore the content of this course with the professor for enrollment. Credits: 4
