This course provides a foundation for the theoretical, conceptual and policy considerations related to crime and justice in Canada. Students will be introduced to the main theoretical approaches to understanding crime (classical, positivist and critical theories), and the various ways in which each has shaped criminal justice policy in Canada. These issues will be brought together through an in-depth analysis of one or two current topics.
This course will require you to be online for live lectures every week at the scheduled time. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.
