LGLS Practicum

The LGLS Practicum (LGLS 145A) is a two-credit course that offers students a robust entry into the world of justice and reform work. Undergraduate and graduate students alike are granted placements at a variety of institutions looking to do restorative work in the field of incarceration. The course consists of readings and mixed media assignments meant to prompt reflection and conversation about the prison industrial complex, and its relationship to higher education. As a requirement of the practicum, students gain experiential learning and apply the principles of the class into the praxis of their lives.
