Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
For CJ200, all students will complete an essay, 6-8 pages (1,500 to 2,000 words) in length (excluding the cover sheet and bibliography pages) which compares and contrasts two of the theories of crime and criminal activity discussed in the course. You are free to select the theories you wish to examine. It is also acceptable to compare or contrast theories from different disciplines. In other words, you may choose to compare one of the sociological theories with a similar perspective in the psychological theories. Your essay should consider the historical foundations of the study of criminal behavior; and examine ways in which society responds to criminal behavior in terms of prevention and punishment. The paper should be written in APA format and have at least four sources, three of which should be sources not covered in the course. The essay should contain a title page, an outline, and a bibliography.
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
The final course grade will be determined using the following measurement:
Mid- Term Examination:
Term Paper: (CoreAssessment)
Class Participation: 10%
Mid- Term Examination: 30%
Term Paper: (Core Assessment) 30%
Final Examination: 30%
Students will be prepared to discuss all scheduled assignments in class.
The grade scale is as follows:
A -93% or above
B -85% to 92.99%
C -77% to 84.99%
D -70% to 76.99%
Late Submission of Course Materials: The instructor will not accept assignments late. Assignments not submitted on the due date will receive a grade of
“zero.” All tests must be taken on the dates the class is given the test. Extreme situations may be handled by the
instructor on a case-by-case basis. A determination of an “extreme situation” is solely the instructor’s.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Cell phones, beepers and other communication devices are not to be used, or on, during class. Disruptive behavior
(as determined by the instructor) is unfair to the other students and will not be tolerated. Loud talking, snoring, sleeping,
coming late to class or leaving early, except in emergencies, will not be tolerated. Multiple disruptions over a term will
lead to the withdrawal of the student from the class by the instructor. The instructor may announce other rules from
time to time.
Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life.

Plagiarism:Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing.
