Lakeland University’s Criminal Justice program, dedicated to keeping its curriculum fresh and current, is adding seven courses beginning this fall.

The following new classes will help keep the program among Wisconsin’s most progressive and relevant when it comes to meeting the needs of an ever-evolving industry:

  • Research Methods in Criminal Justice and Criminology
  • Victimology
  • Violence and Violent Crime
  • Media, Crime and Violence
  • Drugs, Crime and Society
  • Data Analysis in Criminal Justice
  • Criminal Justice Administration

The additions are the result of extensive research and outreach by assistant professors of criminal justice Richard Lemke and Karin Miofsky.

“We added courses that highlight what is relevant in today’s society,” said Miofsky. “Over the past few years, Dr. Lemke has put an enormous amount of work into identifying what our students should learn prior to leaving Lakeland in order to succeed in the criminal justice field.”
