Criminal Justice

The Criminal Justice Field School combines two courses, Introduction to the Criminal Justice System and Forensic Psychology, in a compressed, 3-week format.

Explore the criminal justice system, and investigate, evaluate, and apply psychological and sociological research to areas such as lie detection, police interrogations, criminal profiling, racial profiling, murdered/missing Indigenous women/girls, wrongful convictions, and mental health and the criminal justice system.

This years Criminal Justice Field School participants will meet a variety of members of the criminal justice system, stage and collect evidence at a crime scene, and participate in a mock trial at the local (Terrace) Courthouse with actual working members of the court (i.e., a provincial court judge, Crown prosecutor and defense counsel).
