CRIM 205 - Criminological Theory

3 Credits
The goal of this course is to develop an understanding of the discipline of criminology through an examination of its theories, basic assumptions and definitions. In studying crime and delinquency as social phenomena, particular focus will be given to the three principle divisions of criminology. The sociology of law explores how certain behaviors come to be defined as criminal. Etiology examines the various theories proposed for explaining crime. Finally, typologies focus on the kinds of crimes. Prerequisite: CRIM 101 .
