Students of this course will be asked to critically examine the intention and implementation of correctional policy and practices. To do this, the history of corrections will be traversed, taking into consideration the justification and effects of corrections. Using the historical development as a way of understanding current ideas, students will be asked to analyze contemporary methods, focusing again upon the justification and its impact upon the offender, future offenders, the Criminal Justice System and society.
