CJ 500 Foundations of Criminal Justice Administration

An application of organization and administration theories to the criminal justice system. This course uses an interactionist perspective of administration to facilitate understanding of criminal justice organizations. The course perspective moves away from the individual offender and toward the self-generating effects of interlocking systems operating in a complex environment of interests. It also provides students with fundamental concepts of civil law as reflected in the law of civil procedure, the civil law court system, and areas of civil liability for criminal justice practitioners. Prerequisite: admission to the M.A. in Criminal Justice Administration and Policy program. (3)
