This course will use sociological perspectives to explore issues related to jail and prison systems for juveniles and adults, probation and parole, and alternative sentencing. The societal importance of these issues and topics is evident in light of the fact that the United States holds a greater percentage of its people in correctional facilities than any other country in the world, and expends an increasing amount of public resources upon corrections in America.
