The MC Experience
The Administration of Justice Department strives to demonstrate that the criminal justice system and the problems of crime and delinquency are part of a larger sociocultural pattern rather than an isolated system. The major components of the criminal justice system are explored, as well as their relationships within a democratic system. The program will prepare students to become "change-capable" practitioners in any component of the criminal justice system by emphasizing the development of competence in relating the social, economic, and political ramifications of change to the administrative policies and practices of criminal justice agencies.
