Course Descriptions


    CJ 160 - Introduction to Criminal Justice

    This course is for students who intend to enter one of the many professions associated with the criminal justice system and those who have a general interest in the topic. Through readings, discussions, papers and experiential learning, students will become familiar with the broad outlines of the criminal justice system, the causes of crime, strategies to deter and prevent crime, and the investigation and punishment of crime. Students are required to participate in a tour of the NH State Prison or to arrange their own “personal field trip”, such as police ride-along or viewing a morning or afternoon court session.
