Course Detail

JS 101 Critical Issues and Ideas in Justice (3 units)

This course is a required and upper division course in Justice Studies. All classes will occur on campus with lectures by local professors and practitioners. The program will run for two weeks with additional meetings prior to and following the time in Australia. Language proficiency will not be an issue since Australia is an English–speaking country.  

Student assessment will include two papers, a presentation, and a reflective journal. The first paper will be a comparative analysis of corrections and the second paper will be a comparative analysis of the legal system. The presentation will require the students to reflect upon their papers and discuss how their observations might better inform the US system.

Targeted participants will be upper division, justice studies majors, but JS minors, FS majors and other students are also welcome to apply.
