Criminal Justice in Scotland focuses on a body of scholarship addressing the critical issues, policies, and complexities of the criminal justice system in the United States and United Kingdom. You will be introduced to both theoretical and practical aspects of criminal justice and society--with an emphasis on international difference--while immersing yourself in a different culture. Attending lectures with experts from Abertay University in Dundee, Scotland, you will explore specific challenges facing the social and justice system--including substance abuse, law enforcement practices, minorities and justice, street crime, corrections for adults and juveniles, sentencing patterns, and ethics--while demonstrating the intra-relationships of the system. You will also survey the concept of justice and analyze the global impact of criminality as you study transnational crime and the challenges faced by the collaboration of nations on both a governmental and international level.
During the embedded travel component, housing will consist of overnight accommodations in a hotel/hostel.
The process for enrolling in an embedded course varies according to the instructor and/or department. The program leader has indicated that in order to enroll in the course and travel component, students must submit an on-line interest application. They are then contacted and have a face-to-face meeting to explain the program, and procedures. Once an established group of students has been identified, a group meeting is planned to explain final commitment steps.
