SOCIOL104-01A Introduction to Systems of Criminal Justice (with Paul C Defazio)

The goals of the course are to give students a theoretical and empirical foundation of the criminal justice system. Topics will also include the nature of victimization, the inner workings of the criminal justice system and the outcomes for offenders leaving the system. The student will be exposed to the critical issues in justice, be involved in discussions of their impact on American society, and be asked to consider alternative approaches to addressing these issues. In addition, during the discussion of each segment of the American system of justice, comparisons will be made with other developed and developing nations' justice systems.

Remote: Courses that are typically taught face-to-face will be delivered remotely this summer. As opposed to an online course, which requires no live sessions and allows a student to study anytime, a remote course is either: (1) a course with live class sessions delivered via web conferencing, or (2) a course with pre-recorded lectures that a student can watch anytime, typically paired with live discussions sessions.
