In this program, students will develop an understanding of victims’ rights, sudden and traumatic loss, victim populations, crime, and its effects on victims in the criminal justice system. History and theories of victimization are explored, with an applied victim centered focus. Specific course emphasis is given to issues such as childhood physical and sexual abuse, intimate partner violence, and sexual assault. A field placement experience in victim services provides students with the opportunity to collaborate with victim service agencies in the planning, delivery and evaluation of victim services and advocacy.
