Attending the comparitive criminology Study Abroad corse in London this coming spring break will undoubtedly be a life changing experience both professionally and personally. I will earn 3 upper division course credits for my undergraduate sociology degree, and the program will be considered as part of my 'senior experience.' By taking this course, I will be able to pair my knowledge of criminal justice systems from within a sociological context with hands on experience to critically evaluate and question the American criminal justice system and its mechanisms. Being able to experience and examine the criminal justice system in another country will broaden my perspective and allow for a greater ability to think critically about the inner workings of the system we currently have in place in our own country. I'm very passionate about sociology and have a great love and hunger to understand and evaluate the relationships between people and the social structures that surround them. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for which I am so grateful for being considered. The professional and personal enrichment that I will gain during this Study Abroad program is truly priceless- it is invaluable to my future as a sociologist.
