Beginning in January, Arizona State University will offer selected high-demand undergraduate and graduate courses in Criminology and Criminal Justice and Nonprofit Leadership in the Tucson area.
The new courses will provide expanded, high-quality academic options for aspiring and rising law enforcement and public service professionals, as well as nonprofit and philanthropic organization practitioners living in southern Arizona.
“For nearly four decades the College of Public Programs has served Greater Tucson through the School of Social Work. We are excited to now build and add to that legacy of service through a major expansion of our programs and academic options in Tucson,” said Jonathan Koppell, dean of ASU’s College of Public Programs.
The School of Criminology and Criminal Justice, within ASU’s College of Public Programs, will offer two courses in Tucson during the spring 2013 term. One course, CRJ 461, focuses on domestic violence. The other, CRJ 462, examines the behavior and impact of gangs. It’s the first time the school has offered classes outside the Phoenix area.
