UMASS CRIMINOLOGY CLUB

The College Club of UMass Amherst

The Criminology Club is open to all students who hold a interest in criminology and its related fields. We provide students with the opportunity to explore various aspects of criminology, including (but not limited do), criminal justice, law, psychology, sociology, and forensics. It aim’s to promote students’ interest in the field of criminology and to supports students’ academic, professional, and personal development. Lectures and guest speakers hosted by the club will feature industry professionals, with intriguing experiences, who offer insights into their fields. While group events and field trips will implement hands on involvement and stimulating activities. Our first semester as a club will not be anything short of fascinating, as it wll feature guest speakers ranging from former FBI agents, to serial killer experts, to the surviving victim of Ted Bundy.

COLD CASE

Currently our club is working on solving a cold case!

At one of our meetings this semester we were joined by Sheryl McCullom from the Cold Case Institute! The institute works with college students around the U.S to help solve REAL cold cases! We were given the murder of  Melissa Wolfenbarger. The institute provides us with all relevant case information, and gives us contact to those involved in the case (the victims family, friends, and professionals working on the case). Contact us if you are interested in working on the case with us!
