Crime and Justice

The past thirty years have seen a dramatic increase in prison populations—fueled by the centrality of crime and fear of crime to American politics. This minor melds concepts from the history of crime and criminal law, theories of crime and punishment, and societal circumstances that propel unequal demographics of criminality. PLEASE NOTE: this minor is a joint project of RC Social Theory and Practice and the Sociology Department, so students in either concentration may not elect this minor and no more than three courses may be selected from any single department or program.   Students may not elect both this minor and the minor in law, Justice, and Social Change offered by Sociology Department.
