Psychology of Crime & Justice Minor

About Us

The field of psychology and law examines how the interface of psychology and criminal justice research can improve the legal systems and responses to justice-involved persons.  The Departments of Psychology and Criminal Justice & Criminology have designed a sequence of study that provides students with the academic and experiential backgrounds they will need to pursue a career or advanced professional study that intersect the fields of psychology and legal systems.  For advice about careers or the minor, please set-up an appointment with Dr. Loretta Stalans, Professor of Criminal Justice and Criminology and Psychology.  She can be reached at lstalan@luc.edu, and her office is located at 818 Mundelein Center.
