Our Curriculum

Our Associate’s Degree Program at Wallkill Correctional Facility offers credit-bearing college courses (4 credits each) taught in-person by Faculty from across New York University and New York City. In addition to working towards a A.A. degree in Liberal Studies, students have the option to participate in ongoing student life programming such as a book club, journalism club, creative writing program, and professional and practice-based workshops.

Featured Course: Sociology of New York City

In Fall 2018, students at Wallkill Correctional Facility took a course on the Sociology of New York City. The course curriculum was designed by Professor Zhandarka Kurti with PEP students in mind; over 80% of our students come from the five boroughs that comprise New York City. The course materials focused on the social, political and economic transformations of New York City from the early 1800’s until the present moment. The class touched on topics relating to industrialization, race and class relations, consumption and labor patterns, migration and gentrification.
