Prior to beginning work on this discussion, please review your body of work throughout your program and the Bureau of Justice Statisticsâ€™ The Justice System (Links to an external site.) web page. Contemplate your initial perceptions of the criminal justice system and how and why they have changed throughout your program of study. If you have already submitted work to Portfolium, then you may review it there. However, if you have not, please take a look at the Final Papers and Projects you have completed during your time in the BASCJ program and add your best work to Portfolium now. Once you have added work to Portfolium, you may share with the class your portfolio for feedback. You can link your portfolio directly into your initial post.
Next, choose one of the BASCJ program learning outcomes (PLO) below:
- Analyze criminal justice issues within the systems of law enforcement, the judiciary, and corrections (PLO 1).
- Evaluate the application of the social justice principles of equality, solidarity, and human rights toward building a just society (PLO 2).
- Apply knowledge of cultural sensitivity and diversity awareness to social and criminal justice (PLO 3).
- Deconstruct the relationship between law enforcement, the judiciary, and corrections (PLO 4).
- Interpret the relationship between social justice and criminal justice (PLO 5).
- Develop critical perspectives in the study of social and criminal justice by drawing on the fields of criminology, law, philosophy, psychology, science, and sociology (PLO 6).
Then in an initial post of 250 words in length,
- Provide a detailed assessment of your program of study, correlated to the learning outcome you have chosen.
- Evaluate how your course of study developed your skills in accomplishing this program learning outcome.
- Examine the challenges you may face in your future career for your chosen program learning outcome.
