CRJU 385/499 Crime, Law and Justice in Australia, Winter Session 2019
Students will spend 2 ½ weeks in Sydney, Australia. While the area surrounding the city of Sydney has been inhabited by Aboriginal peoples for thousands of years, the modern city as we know it began in 1788 as a British penal colony in an area of the city now referred to as ‘The Rocks’. The city of Sydney has come to be known for popular signs including the Harbor Bridge, the Sydney Opera House, and of course the world-famous Bondi Beach.
This study abroad course exposes students to the Australian criminal justice system. Key themes will include convict history, crime prevention, social welfare, restorative justice practices, and crime and rehabilitation for special populations, such as indigenous, homeless and refugee communities.
In addition to class activities and several field trips throughout the local area, students will have time to explore the greater Sydney area on their own and all that the region has to offer. From city life to beaches, to the famed Blue Mountains and the Hunter Wine Valley, there are lots of opportunities for students to explore the Aussie life.
