In this course students examine the nature, location, and impact of crime by exploring a broad range of issues related to criminology. Topics include the historical foundations of crime, the theoretical underpinnings of criminality, how we measure criminal acts, and a critical analysis of public policies concerning crime control in society. Students will focus on newly recognized forms of crime that exist within contemporary society in addition to criminal's relationships to the courts, police and other penal agencies.

What Students Say About Online Classes

“My teacher posted his lectures and activities on Blackboard weekly, so I was able to complete all required class work and tests at my own leisure. Most importantly, I learned a ton in the course, and my excellent instructor was available by email around the clock.”
