CJ 3300 - Community Based Corrections


3 cr. 3 hr. Day course offered every other year. Also offered evenings.

This course examines the philosophy of community-based corrections from historical, legal, social and psychological perspectives. The essence of probation and parole and their administration are considered in conjunction with criminal justice issues and practices that affect the court’s decision to allow community sanctions and supervision in lieu of incarceration. Contemporary trends and alternatives to traditional supervision are explored as well. A supervised practicum (20 hours per semester) is encouraged. This course is cross-listed as HMSV 3410 .

Prerequisite(s): CJ 2000 .
