SOC 5630 - Gender and Justice

This course provides an overview of the relatively recent field of women, crime and justice, with particular direction guided by an issues approach. A wide variety of current research and theory in this realm are critically examined. The specific subtopics covered in this course encompass gender and discrimination in society at large, within the sociological/criminological academy, and within the criminal justice system. Broad feminist theoretical and methodological perspectives are drawn upon to contour the examination of women as criminal offenders, as victims of crimes such as rape and intimate violence, and as professional workers within the criminal justice system.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisites: Graduate standing or SOC 2000 or 2100, SOC 2600, SOC 3620, and one other 3000- or 4000-level course (SOC 3140 is encouraged).

Credits: 3 hours

Notes: Open to Upperclass and Graduate Students. 5000-level courses in the Department of Sociology are designed for a graduate student audience. Advanced undergraduates with at least 12 hours of Prerequisites and junior class status will be allowed to enroll. Prerequisites must include SOC 2000 or its equivalent in another related social science discipline and two 3000- or 4000-level courses (i.e. one of each; or two of one). Exemptions for these may be granted in rare cases with the written approval of the director of the Undergraduate Studies Program.
