Criminal Justice 408 / 508 – Criminal Justice in the United Kingdom

A Faculty-Led Study Abroad Course in London, England

*** This program has reached maximum enrollment, but you can contact the instructor to be put on a waiting list. ***

The course is designed to provide students with a general, theoretical, and practical understanding of the criminal justice system in England. Students will use this knowledge to draw comparisons to the criminal justice system in the United States. Students will travel to London where direct contact with practitioners in the English criminal justice system will occur. At that time, the similarities and differences between the two systems will “come to life.” The course is letter graded.

Over the course of the semester, we will explore the following areas:

  • The English and their system of government (compared with America)
  • The extent of crime in England and in the United States

Undergraduate version of course = CRJ 408-627

Graduate version of course = CRJ 508-628

There is a strict 10 person limit for this trip, and registration priority will be given to graduate students interested in CRJ 508-628.
