CRJ 571 - Contemporary Issues in Corrections Credits: 3


This elective, graduate course focuses on the current issues facing corrections in contemporary American society. In this course, we will first critically examine the various theories underlining corrections and correctional policy. Then, we will take a critical look at the history of corrections in the United States. Last, we turn to several current issues facing corrections: racial/economic inequality and mass incarceration; prison violence, treatment, and rehabilitation; women in prison; punitive sentencing; juveniles, the elderly, and the mentally ill in prison; and prisoner reentry and recidivism.
