Program Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes

Our Criminal Justice and Human Security (M.A.) graduates will:

  1. Demonstrate the skills necessary to excel in professional careers in federal, state, and international law enforcement agencies where intercultural communication skills, foreign language skills, and insights into other cultures are increasingly important both to address criminal activity and to take needed steps to prevent it.
  2. Demonstrate an understanding of and appreciation of the rule of law, law enforcement’s role in the securing and protection of civil and human rights, and an understanding of the social conditions and circumstances that foster or discourage criminal behavior.
  3. Demonstrate an understanding of Human Security and its role in the realization of a just and lawful society and the impact that this understanding of security has upon the existing notions of national, regional and international security.
  4. Demonstrate the intercultural literacy skills needed to relate to an increasingly globalized population where norms and values may differ.
  5. Demonstrate an understanding of the role of non-state actors in international crime and justice, in such fields as norm creation, deviance, terrorism, and crime prevention.
  6. Demonstrate an understanding of the interpretations of religion, ideology, and culture that contribute to the proliferation and/or the deterrence of violence and crime.

The Post-Arbitration South China Sea Disputes

CPIA Roundtable with Prof. Nancy Wei

In July 2016, the Permanent Court of Arbitration nullified China’s South China Sea claims, but the dispute is far from being over.

Beijing and Taipei both rejected the ruling, and Philippine’s new President Duterte has shocked many by agreeing to shelve the dispute with Beijing.

How do the new developments affect Washington’s South China Sea strategy?
