Criminal Justice Studies at UNB is about crime, criminal behaviour, and the criminal justice system. It’s about social control, crime prevention, victimization, and criminal sanctions. And it’s about examining all of these things from multiple perspectives – psychological, sociological, historical, philosophical, and business.
Criminal Justice Studies is available as a minor and is open to students majoring in Psychology or Sociology.
Why Criminal Justice Studies at UNB?
