CRIJ 5309: Seminar in Criminal Justice Administration

Using case study as its principal methodology and moving from theoretical propositions to practical considerations, this course examines a range of concepts developed in the managements and organization literature as applied in the administration of criminal justice agencies. A criminal justice system perspective is achieved by examining selected issues involving the administration of police departments, prosecutors' and public defenders' offices, jails and prisons, and probation and parole offices. Particular emphasis will be placed on leadership and workplace issues.
