Criminal Justice Concentration
The mission of the Criminal Justice Concentration is to empower the criminal justice practitioner to advocate for meaningful change, within the criminal justice system that will embrace a collaborative effort between the community, and those charged with the administration of justice within that community. The concentration will activate and articulate a construct of an emerging notion of social and economic justice.
