CRJ 304 Criminology

This course exposes the student to the scientific study of crime and criminal behavior. Where the study of criminal justice covers how the justice system investigates, prosecutes and controls or punishes those who commit crimes, the field of criminology explores why people commit crime and what got them entangled in the justice system. The class will examine basic concepts and terminology about theories of crime, victimology, and anti-social behavior. Prerequisite: CRJ 101 or SOC101 (3 credits)
