CRIM 399R Criminology CRN: 31471 (3 cr) This course provides a sociological perspective on the causes of crime
and societal responses to crime. We will compare the images of crime and criminals that emerge from the media, from official crime statistics, and from the writings of people engaged in criminal behavior. Specific crimes examined include mass murder, auto theft, family violence, substance abuse, and terrorism. Sociological theory and research will be applied to help students understand and explain why crime exists, and to suggest effective policies for crime reduction. We will critically analyze the functioning of the U.S. criminal justice system
in light of the implications of sociological theory and research.
