Introduction to Criminal Justice
This course introduces students to the foundations of the criminal justice system: police, courts and corrections. We will also discuss the concept of justice and critically examine definitions and explanations of crime. Throughout the course, students will explore issues from a combined historical, sociological and legal perspective and will also discuss contemporary issues such as democratic policing and restorative justice. Students will also be expected to engage in debates regarding controversial issues such as police accountability, plea bargaining and prison alternatives.
Applicants seeking admissions to this short course must be sixteen (16) years and over.
