CRJ 320 - Corrections


This course provides a traditional overview of the corrections system including the historical development of the social control of human behavior in our society. Students will come to understand how correctional institutions implement the incarceration of offenders – how it functions for society and shapes our culture. An analysis on major issues confronting corrections including sentencing strategies, prisoner management, prison gangs, the inmate subculture and violence, prisoner re-entry and the reintegration of special-type offenders back into society will be examined.
