This course is being offered through the Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program, bringing together "inside" students from the Cooper Street Correctional Facility and "outside" students from the University of Michigan to exchange ideas and perceptions about crime and criminal justice.

Criminal justice is a big topic that can be broadly conceptualized as society's response to crime and the institutions through which this happens. It includes legislative bodies that create laws, law enforcement agencies, courts, corrections (jails, prisons, probation, and parole), and come aspects of community services. We will touch on all of these aspects of criminal justice in the course, marrying theoretical knowledge and practical experience through weekly discussion-oriented meetings throughout the semester with facilitated dialogue involving all participants.

To request an override for the course please email with the subject "SOC 468".

Course Requirements:

This course meets at Cooper Street Correctional Facility in Jackson, MI. All students must undergo a background check before being allowed into the facility.
