Course Description

Crime and punishment seem to be a constant in contemporary society, but few people understand the philosophical and historical processes that created our current system of justice and penality. In this course, students explore both classical and modern theories and research to understand the development of our contemporary penal system, and then use this knowledge to conduct an in-depth sociological analysis of the current Canadian penal and justice system.

Prerequisite(s): A minimum "C-" grade in one of ANTH 1120, SOCI 1120, 1121, or 1127.
