CRJU 105 - Introduction To Criminal Justice


Credit(s): 3
This course introduces the major philosophies that underlie the American justice system and processes, and the structural (i.e., social control) mechanisms that function to make law, enforce law, adjudicate law and handle law violators, both in the adult and juvenile systems. Students learn the relationships between and among these structures and other major societal structures and processes (e.g., political, economic, cultural), as well as basic criminal procedure, related to how suspected law violators go from investigation, to arrest, to prosecution and adjudication, to correctional supervision, to release and reentry into the community. Basic civil and constitutional laws that relate to these processes are also introduced.

Learning Outcome(s): Public Speaking
Course Level: Undergraduate
