CRJU 7715:Race, Crime and Justice

3 Credit Hours
Prerequisite: Admission to the MSCJ program or permission of the program director
This course provides an in-depth examination of racial and ethnic issues related to crime and justice in America. The course explores how racial stratification and inequalities influence crime and victimization and official responses to crime. Topic areas may include disparities in criminal justice enforcement, minority representation in the criminal justice system, and strategies for addressing discrimination across criminal justice policies and practices. Data, theoretical approaches, and current research about the ways in which race and ethnicity relate to criminal involvement and criminal justice processing are examined. In doing so, the complex ways in which the race-crime-criminal justice connection is both a product of societal forces and affects broader social relations are explored.
