CJ 115   Introduction to Corrections    Credits: 3

This course provides a sociological and humanistic approach to understanding the corrections system. Institutional and community sanctions are discussed from the point of view of offenders and corrections workers. A fundamental concept is that corrections is a system of interconnected parties, and not just a standalone service to society. Topics include an overview of the corrections system, the history of correctional thought and practice, punishment and prevention, the law of corrections, the correctional client, jails and short-term detention, probation, community corrections, prison and long-term incarceration, corrections for juvenile and women offenders, race and ethnicity, and the death penalty.
