CRJU 410 - Applied Theory and Crime Policy

(3 credits)
Prerequisite: CRJU 320 (formerly 420) and CRJU 330 (formerly 430) and CRJU 331 and CRJU 341 and CRJU 354 and CRJU 406
This course utilizes an applied approach in examining theories of crime causation in light of criminal justice aims. The criminal justice system responds to crime and criminals based on explicit and implicit theories of causation. Building on the analysis and skills acquired from our research methods and data analysis courses, students will examine the validity of crime theories and correlated interventions. Additional attention will be paid to the associate policy implications. (CWRM)
