CJ 450 - Seminar in Criminal Justice


(3 Credits)

This seminar is a capstone course for all criminal justice majors. The course focuses on different contemporary aspects of criminal justice, including issues and content on general as well as specific topics. Areas covered will include legal, criminological, social, and ethical issues surrounding deterrence and sentencing; discussion will also include creation and policing of criminal statutes, criminalization/decriminalization, defenses, and investigative techniques used. A survey of four main CJ courses: Crim Law, Criminology, Investigations and Forensics, and CJ Ethics will be a major part of this course. Of paramount concern will be an understanding of how all these arenas interrelate with one another.

Prerequisite(s): CJ 410 , ENG 465
