Crime Victims In Criminal Justice Curriculum: Are We There Yet?, Lisa Bostaph, Andrew Giacomazzi, Patrick Brady, Christopher Beattie

Andrew Giacomazzi

While theoretical explanations, system response, and policy work on offenders and specific crime types are the backbone of criminal justice curricula in the U.S., a similar breadth and depth of education on crime victims appear to be lacking in traditional criminal justice curricula. This paper reports the results of a national study of 679 randomly selected criminal justice program curricula. Institutional, departmental, and course-level variables indicate that while victim-based research has proliferated, it does not mirror the extent to which victim-based courses are required in criminal justice programs. Theoretical, professional, and policy implications of the results are discussed.
