CAMS Roundtable: Careers in Criminology and Criminal Justice

March 24, 2021

6:00-7:30 PM

As an interdisciplinary field, criminology represents a broad range of academic disciplines including psychology, urban studies, sociology, economics, public policy, law and statistics.  The range of careers is equally diverse.  From defense, law enforcement, and criminal prosecution, to forensic analysis and research, policymaking, and reform, there are many ways to influence society and its approach to the justice system.

 Whether you are a Criminology major, studying another academic discipline or interested in the ways data can be used for social reform, join in the conversation and see how College alumni used their education to make a difference.  What brought them to their work and what experiences in the College defined their career paths?

This event is presented in collaboration with the Penn Undergraduate Criminology Society.
