Always Do the Reading
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I recommend this course very much to any criminal justice major or anyone interested in the field. The professor (Butler) was perfect in answering student questions an making sure that everyone was on the same page while also not just relying on lectures but got the students involved. He dove well beyond the depths of the course.
You learn the history of the prison, jail or correctional institutions, and how they evolved over time. Through this you begin to figure out the problems and solutions that have been born over time and how they all connect not only to the field but to society and the people. At the end, it makes you question yourself on what you can do to help or solve the problems that out weigh the solutions.

Advice for students:
Always try to read the texts that the professor recommends as it does relate and more than helps in the following lecture. And buying or just having the textbook is a must! it's a lot of history but can easily be remembered.
