SOAN 271 - Introduction to Criminology


FDR: SS4 Social Science - Group 4 Distribution
Credits: 3

This course introduces the field of criminology, providing an overview of the issues involved in defining, measuring, and explaining crime. We engage in a practical study of criminology using holistic and multi-perceptional lenses via lateral thought while avoiding normative assessments as we expand our Mulligan Stew of knowledge. Students will learn about the field of criminology, examine general characteristics of crime and criminals, review early and contemporary theories which attempt to explain criminal behavior, and discuss crime in the modern world from an interdisciplinary and integrative perspective.
