This class focuses on the criminal justice system and its effect on student's lives. Students will begin by examining the makeup of a criminal law and their basic rights related to criminal justice. A major focus of the course is law enforcement, at both the local and federal levels, and the responsibilities of the agencies related to this field. Students will examine discretion and criminal procedure and their role in police work, investigate the steps of the judicial process, analyze the history and theories of corrections, and learn about different careers in the criminal justice field.
