SOCI 402 - Criminology

(3 cr) Crime is a major social problem that increasingly continues not only to undermine and stifle individual liberties, but also is having a tremendous draining effect on the already burdened valuable resources of the American society. This course provides an understanding of the historical development and definition of the concepts of crime and the criminal justice system; the volume and extent of crime; and the nature and processes of the criminal justice system and correction. The course will also explore various factors (biological, psychological, and sociological) associated with crime.
