Educational Philosophy: The Instructor's educational philosophy is one of interactive learning based on lectures, readings, dialogues, writings and examinations. The instructor will engage each student in critical thinking situations to encourage a lively exploration of ideas, issues and contradictions. The instructor believes that; "As a general rule, the most successful people are those with the best information." Disraeli.
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.
