Course Description:
This intermediate course examines organization and management of security programs in business, government and industry with emphasis on selection and implementation of security. Prerequisite: CJ332. 3:0:3

Educational Philosophy:

Lecture, demonstration, videos, field trips, student presentations, research assignments and class discussion will be used to stimulate learning.  I encourage students to bring their work and life experiences into the classroom to create and foster a fun and active learning environment where students can explore learning concepts, theories, and applied concepts.  Students are encouraged to work collaboratively through the learning process and to respect each student's contributions to the learning environment.

Learning Outcomes:
  Core Learning Outcomes

  1. Diagram managerial acts and functions
  2. Categorize leadership principles
  3. Apply organizational principles, structure, and function


Core Assessment:

Class Assessment:

The student will be required to develop a ten page paper that explores leadership principles and gives examples of organizational principles, structures and functions.  The paper will incude a diagram of managerial acts and functions.  The paper will discuss and categorize leadership principles. 
 
The student will be required to take a mid-term and final exmination on material covered by the text and class presentations.

Grading:
 

Assessment of learning will be determined by using the following percentages to compute your final grade:


1.  The mid-term examination will count a maximum 35%
2.  The paper will count a maximum 20%
3.  The final Examination will count a maximum 45% 
 

The final course grade will be determined by the above assessment.  Grading factors for the written assignment will include: timeliness (Being on time with your papers), format (APA or MLA), grammar, logical presentation, depth, range and timeliness of references.  The course grade will be given based upon the following measurements: 
 

Final course grading scale:
     A . . . . . . . . . 93% or over
     B . . . . . . . . . 83% to 92.99%
     C . . . . . . . . . 73% to 82.99%
     D . . . . . . . . . 63% to 72.99%
     F . . . . . . . . . 62% and below or more than 15 course hours missed.


Late Submission of Course Materials:

Assignments and papers are required to be submitted on time.  Late submissions will result in an adjustment to the student final grade (See course assessment).  If an assignment is due on a night that the student is not present, it is the student's responsibility to get the assignment to the instructor on the due date.  Five points will be deducted each day an assignment is late. Assignments will not be accepted after three dates of the due date without prior approval from the instructor.

 

Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Class participation is expected and will form a “Plus” factor of the final grade. 
-  Students are expected to attend all scheduled classes and be on time.
-  Students are required to read all material assigned prior to class and apply the material during class discussions,      activities, and exercises.
-  The student is responsible for providing the instructor with justification for an excused absence, either prior to or immediately after the absence.
