Interdisciplinary Approaches to Criminal Justice
LAWS 60804
We will read literature from fields including economics, criminology, sociology, history, and psychology in an attempt to make sense of various features of the American criminal justice system. These include the determinants of crime; the effects of policing, incarceration, and social programs on crime rates; and the consequences of criminal punishment. We will discuss how the approaches of these disciplines differ and what each has to offer. The grade is based on a series of reaction papers.
