About the program
Students in the Special Topics in Criminal Justice course of Boston University learn skills to work with real data sources across justice-system domains, from policing to corrections, as well as community-based organizations. Contemporary challenges, such as disparate treatment, abuse of force, and ‘overpolicing,’ frame discussions and assignments. The strengths and limitations of data-driven approaches are considered.
Valuable to students seeking careers in analytical roles as well as other practitioners, the course can be used to fulfill both strategic management and crime analysis concentrations.
