CRJS 6207 - Comparative, International, and Global Justice♦


(5 cr.) Criminal justice systems vary by country and include different approaches for policing, prosecution, sentencing, and punishment. Understanding criminal justice systems and approaches in other countries can often lead to the implementation of new and more effective approaches in one’s own country. In this course, students will explore crime and justice from a global perspective, identifying crimes and criminal proceedings that affect multiple countries and promote global justice. Students will also compare crime rates and criminal justice systems between and among specific countries and evaluate the fairness and efficacy of different criminal justice systems, models, policing approaches, and punishments. As students progress through the course, they will be asked to consider evidence-based practices that could be applied universally to combat crime and how their learning during each module leads to a greater understanding of the criminal justice system and combatting crime in their own country.
♦Students may take this as a non-degree course, which means they do not have to be enrolled in a program. Contact an enrollment specialist [1-866-492-5336 (U.S.);1-443-627-7222 (toll)] for more information.
