CJA123 :  Exploring Contemporary Issues in Criminal Justice

This class explores the concept of crime literacy which is focused upon questioning some of the basic assumptions that we have about crime and the criminal justice system in our country. Thus, we explore those assumptions and shed new light upon issues that have in some cases become distorted and inaccurate, frequently because of media coverage. This course is not designed to replace the general introductory sequence in criminal justice (CJA111-112-113). It is a companion piece to that series of classes. Those courses provide a general description of criminal justice which sets the stage for the current discussion but they are not required as prerequisites for this class.
Prerequisite: RD090, WR090 and MTH020, each with a grade of "C" or better; or placement above stated course levels. CJA111, CJA112 and CJA113 recommended.
Credit Hours: 3
