CRJ 277 - Interrogation 3 s.h.

This course examines the dynamics of social psychological persuasion existing in the process of criminal interrogation. Attention is given to the differences between interrogation of suspected offenders and the interview of victims and witnesses. Interrogation is a field that to a large extent is dependent on both verbal and non-verbal communication. Both verbal and non-verbal communications are culturally mediated behaviors. In order to sensitize students to cultural differences in the area of communication, we will study interrogation from a multicultural angle.
Prerequisite(s): SOC 101 ; CRJ 101 .
