Dr. Klossou’s Criminology course focuses on current theories of crime, types of crime, programs for prevention, and the control and treatment of crime. This course is required for students in the Criminal Justice program, which is one of Stevenson’s most popular majors. Students in CJUS285 develop an understanding of how crime, criminal behavior, and the criminal justice system are related. In today’s class, students were discussing social learning theories with particular attention to the role of the individual in society. Dr. Klossou led the students through the theory, demonstrating how social interactions with intimate personal groups contributed to learning and behavior. The class also considered different scenarios, behaviors, and responses.
Some of the careers pursued by Stevenson’s Criminal Justice graduates include forensic investigator, counselor, police officer, and lawyer.
