Course Description & Objectives: 

The definition of crime and society's approach to crime is a product of historical, philosophical, and sociological forces. These forces have shaped and continue to shape the correctional system or prison system. There are many dilemmas in punishment and corrections. Why do we punish those who commit crimes? Why do we use probation, monetary fines, and incarceration as the primary means of punishment? Should we consider alternative methods? Is Uganda or any other East African country too lenient or too harsh on those members of its society committing crime? Does rehabilitation work? Should rehabilitation be a goal of the correctional system? These are but a few of the questions the course explores. By the end of the semester, the student will be conversant in these issues and be able to bring to bear the historical, philosophical, and sociological theories that influence the correctional system or prison system.
