Critical Introduction to Criminal Justice offers students a chance to think more deeply about the way the criminal justice system operates. In doing so, we think about ways to work toward resolutions for some of the issues that exist. The course will make students think twice about how our TV shows and media present the criminal justice system and make judgments on their own about what is accurate or exaggerated.
Faculty will contact all students after the Monday, December 12, registration deadline.
