Applied Ethics in Criminal Justice

The development of curriculum integrating applied ethics study into a criminal justice major.

Criminal justice professionals face serious problems and controversies on a daily basis that require not only subject matter expertise in criminal justice, but also the broad set of skills cultivated by the humanities and ethical philosophy. To address timely societal issues of critical importance and to better prepare the next generation of criminal justice professionals, Medaille College proposes Applied Ethics in Criminal Justice, a three-year implementation project to pilot a model for integrating the humanities discipline of philosophy in deep ways into the social sciences in undergraduate education. This interdisciplinary project involves faculty members from Medaille’s Departments of Social Sciences and Interdisciplinary Studies, and it will include creating one new course, revising two existing courses, linking two courses in a learning community, and incorporating experiential learning into students’ coursework.
