New “Crime & Criminal Justice” Study Abroad Program in London
London – Twelve eager students traverse the cobblestone streets, catching the tube from site to site, pausing to scribble notes in their journals and listen attentively to trials and lectures. These students were participating in the Crime & Criminal Justice in London Global Study program, which ran for the first time over the 2015 Winterim. This intensive, two-week study abroad program focused on the impact of England on the contemporary practice of criminal justice.
“It’s a great opportunity for students to expand their worldview and see how other systems handle the universal problem of crime, often in very different ways,”
explained Lonnie Schaible, PhD, Assistant Professor and faculty leader of the program.
