Course Description:
This intermediate course examines the principles, methods, requirements, and standards for industrial security systems. Prerequisite: CJ233 3:0:3

Educational Philosophy:
I will use brevity to describe my philosophy for this particular course.  I feel learning should be enjoyable/fun and possess certain ingredients, which will challenge students each week.  We will accomplish this through the following methods: Weekly threaded discussions will serve as our means to discuss issues and interact with each other.  I believe that a healthy level of weekly discussion will make the course enjoyable and provide valuable insight to one another.  Homework will serve as the weekly measurement to keep everyone current and up-to-date with the course.  The final exam will evaluate your understanding of the material and provide a logical conclusion for the course.  I expect everyone to therefore enjoy the next eight weeks and leave the course feeling challenged with a significant grasp of Industrial Security.

Core Assessment:

Class Assessment:

Each student is responsible for:

Completing weekly reading assignments.
Completing weekly discussion questions.
Completing four writing assignments referred to as homework.
Completing a proctored final exam.
Be sure to check each week to make sure that you participated in all of the threaded discussion questions. There are multiple questions for each week.

When submitting papers please be sure to submit them via the dropbox each week.


The grading scale is as follows: A = 90-100; B = 80-89; C = 70-79; D = 60-69; F = 0-59.

Grades will be based on a one thousand (1000) point system. A= 900-1000 B= 800-899 C= 700-799 D= 600-699 F= 599 and Below.
Final Exam - CORE ASSESSMENT (20% of Overall Grade) = 200 Points 
4 Homework Papers (40% of Overall Grade)= 400 Points; Each Paper is worth 50 points.  To receive an A, a paper must address the topic, be free of spelling and grammar errors, be a minimum of 2-3 pages, and be properly cited.
Weekly Participation Weeks 1 through 8 (40% of Overall Grade) = 400 Points; each weekly participation is worth 50 points Weekly Discussion Note: You are required to respond to each posted question by each Thursday.  You are required to provide a minimum of two replies to two other student's responses by each Saturday.  Responses should not be short one liners, however offer insightful feedback based upon logic.  Remember to always be respectful of one another keeping in mind that we do not necessarily must possess the same thought on discussion matters.
Course Submission of Late Work: Work should be submitted to the instructor by the last day of each assigned week.  Students experiencing a problem should contact the instructor to advise the reason work may be submitted late.  Unless authorized, late work will be subject to a penalty of 10% reduction for each week late.
Proctored Final Examination A final proctored examination will be taken in a proctored testing environment during the 8th week at one of the Park University sites around the country or at an alternative location.  For proctored examinations, photo identification is required at the time of the test.  Guidelines for selecting an acceptable proctor can be found on the Park University Website.   Other Information on proctored exams: It will be the responsibility of the student to arrange for a proctor, by the 6th week of the term, who is accepted and approved by the course instructor.   Approval of proctors is the discretion of the Online instructor.   A proctor request form will be made available to you during the first week of class so that you can send your requested proctor to your instructor for approval.   Failure to take a final proctored exam (or submit your final project for some online graduate courses) will result in an automatic "F" grade.

Late Submission of Course Materials:
Material submitted after the submission deadline will be subject to a 10% reduction of possible grade for each week submitted late unless arrangements are made with the instructor prior to the deadline.
