What Will I Study?

Criminology students from Lynchburg College have visited Edinburgh, Scotland as part of CRIM 377 Comparative Criminology since 2005. The bi-annual trip allows students to learn the similarities and differences in the US and UK Criminal Justice Systems.

People and societies are complex, so it’s no wonder that courses come from a variety of subjects: sociology, history, psychology, political science, and international relations.
