CJS 365 - Social Diversity and Crime


Credit(s): 3

Analysis of the perspective of those typically overlooked in the criminal justice system: the poor, racial/ ethnic minorities, women, the aging community and homosexuals. By combining an experience-based understanding of minority communities and their interactions with the criminal justice system with a harm-focused orientation on crime, this course will promote alternative frameworks for understanding minority issues. As a result, this course will challenge preconceived notions and confirm others. In the end, it is hoped that “we” will come away with a deeper more holistic understanding of minority issues, which are rarely discussed in our discipline’s academic context.
