CRIM 205 - Corrections

This course explores the historical development of correction systems.  The
principles of correction operations, theories and methods of offender treatment 
which may be employed within the boundaries of probation, parole, prison, capital 
punishment and other correction alternatives are studied.  Local, state and federal correctional systems are reviewed as well as looking at the patterned behaviors of both custodial staff and inmates in the context of a controlled environment.  The concept, rationale and administration of the adult correctional  institutions will be the focal point in this introductory course.
