    • Abstract:
      The number of universities offering criminal justice degrees has grown exponentially since the 1970s, though few studies have been conducted into the effect of criminal justice curriculum on the perception of crime and race. The basis of this study was framed in Mezirow's transformative learning theory, which in part states that education can cause a change in perspective and result in cognitive behavioral change. This study involved assessing the effect of criminal justice curriculum on the perceptions of crime and race held by participants attending a university in the Midwest. The results of the study were not statistically significant. This study adds to the limited literature currently available, and is imperative to the continued research on the effect of criminal justice curriculum on the perception of crime and race.
