Monterey Bay Justice Project

Capstone students consider the future of mass incarceration in the U.S.

Every semester students at California State University, Monterey Bay take part in Capstone courses. This spring, some students from the School of Humanities and Communication, explored the theme of the Year 2050 in their Capstone experience.

Three of the students looked specifically at the issues of mass incarceration and the criminal justice system in the United States. They provided historical context and data on our prison system, and provided insights as to what the future might hold, and how we can reduce the number of people incarcerated in the U.S.

The students: Breea Alex, Alyssa Granados and Angel Serrano, agreed to share their final portfolios with the Justice Project. Please take a look at their work.
