Explore the Justice Studies Program
Justice studies majors think critically about issues that are part of the national conversation concerning justice: race and policing, cybercrime, the opioid crisis, juvenile delinquency, sexual and interpersonal violence, immigrants and refugees, wrongful convictions and bullying. All students do applied or research internships in New England or Washington. Many spend a semester studying in Budapest and participating in Mock Trial. Our graduates excel in various positions including FBI agents, federal probation and parole, police officers from local to federal levels, victim/witness advocates, prison wardens, police prosecutors, attorneys and juvenile justice advocates.
Follow along with Professor Michele Leichtman and Ms. Deb Briand as they take prospective students on a tour through the program in this zoom meeting.
