CRIM 4303

CRIM 4303 Death Penalty (3-0). This class is designed to examine the moral, legal, social and political aspects surrounding the death penalty issues. We will focus on the history of capital punishment both domestic and abroad. Issues of deterrence as well as how problems of discrimination are actively addressed. This course will utilize past legal and criminological research to argue both for and against the death penalty in America. This course is not designed to reinforce a student's current belief-rather to challenge and broaden their understanding of a complicated and divisive criminal/political issue.
