Integrated and Interdisciplinary Thinking

Integrated and Interdisciplinary Thinking is emphasized in every major, equipping students with knowledge and problem solving tools needed in today’s workforce.

As a student at Quinnipiac, Sabrina Acosta `20 learned that working in the criminal justice system requires empathy, understanding and respect.

Acosta, a double major in criminal justice and sociology, credits a diverse array of courses — including race and ethnicity, hip-hop culture and crime in media — with expanding her knowledge of different groups of people, their perspectives and experiences. However, it was the Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program, a seminar course that enabled her to communicate with — and learn alongside — inmates in a local prison that truly opened her eyes.

Acosta is eager to step up when she graduates to ensure that previously incarcerated individuals get their chance. She is hopes to become a warden someday, and plans to work in reform programs and possibly start her own non-profit organization.
