Christine Janis

M.A. Northern Illinois University

Scholarly Interests: I enjoy introducing students to the Sociological and Criminological theories presented in my classes and how they can relate to real world situations and experiences. My current research interests include the relationship between media and the criminal justice system and how the media contributes to misconceptions about crime and criminal justice. In my spare time, I work as a volunteer with the Crime Prevention and Community Education Unit of the Naperville Police Department.

Recent Courses Taught: Introduction to Sociology, Criminology, Criminal Justice Systems, Social Problems
