About Culture and Deviance Studies at John Jay College of Criminal Justice

The major in Culture and Deviance Studies is designed to provide students with a basic interdisciplinary understanding of deviance as a concept of difference and diversity within the framework of cross-cultural research, and how deviance has been related to important social problems and institutional responses to treat and control them. This foundation is enhanced by a comprehensive and critical understanding of cultural variation and macro- and micro-social and historical contexts, as these apply to human conflict. This major also teaches students the ethnographic and ethnological perspectives and skills used in professional field research, while maintaining strong interdisciplinary content. The Culture and Deviance Studies major prepares students to be professionally effective in diverse and challenging fields, including social services, protective and corrective services, probation, parole, community reintegration and treatment. The research, writing, and interdisciplinary theoretical training provide majors with the background necessary for graduate programs in social work, law, or the social sciences. The core requirements pertain to theory, ethnographic methods, cross-cultural research and analysis, while electives demonstrate applications of both theory and method to particular problems.
