With over 30 interdisciplinary research centers and more than 600 full-time faculty collaborating on basic and applied research in the United States and around the globe, Northeastern offers countless opportunities for students to apply their classroom learning to the process of discovery. In the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice, students conduct cutting-edge research alongside our top-tier faculty who are experts in topics such as bias victimization, gun violence, gang violence, homicide and suicide, human trafficking, juvenile justice, mass incarceration, racial profiling, recidivism, and many more. The School has several of its own research centers and initiatives that align closely with topics covered in the criminal justice curriculum. Students of all class years in our bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral programs are always welcomed and encouraged to engage in research opportunities with us.
