Criminal Justice-COLL | Probation and Parole
P304 | 7050 | Bingham


The theoretical, historical, cultural, and structural developments
within the American probation and parole industry will be presented
and explored.  Probation and parole's association and
interrelatedness with criminal justice subsystems such as police,
the courts, and corrections will be addressed.  The course is
partially designed to assist criminal justice and social science
majors in finalizing career decisions about probation and parole
employment.  A prison field trip is required.  Course will draw
heavily upon current and cutting-edge practices within probation and
parole through references to directions and initiatives active
within the American Probation and Parole Association and the
National Association of Probation Executives.  Future
programmatic trends and shifts in rehabilitative/correctional
programming and probation/parole administration will also be
reviewed.
