CJC 1000 Crime and Punishment

An introductory examination of the broad spectrum of systems, processes and people, that constitute the field of corrections. The course explores where corrections in America originated, where it is today, where it seems to be going from here, and what issues need to be resolved to get there. There is an emphasis on the problems of corrections, and the student is stimulated to explore potential answers to those conflict areas. Whenever possible, practical orientations to the field of corrections are presented, on both an in-class and extra-class basis.
