This study examines course offerings in race and crime among North America's 25 doctoral-level programs in Criminal Justice/Criminology. Each program was surveyed regarding their course offerings and program requirements in race and crime. As has been found with undergraduate textbooks and curriculum, our results indicate a general neglect of race and crime. Various pedagogical approaches for incorporating race and crime in doctoral program curriculum will be discussed.
