About

The Special Topics in Criminal Justice course of Boston University examines contemporary management and accountability practices with an emphasis on the ways in which data can be employed to improve these practices.

Overview

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.

Programme Structure

Topics include:

  • Data-Driven Management & Accountability
  • Data analysis drives administration, management, and accountability processes within criminal justice and related organizations. 
  • While traditional crime analysis often narrowly seeks to improve effectiveness in public safety outcomes, management and accountability analysis seeks to ensure fair, efficient, transparent, and accountable practices as well.
