CRJU 428 - Culture and Crime

(3 credits)
Prerequisite: CRJU 201 and CRJU 202
This course examines the impact of what occurs before crimes are ever committed. Students will begin with an exposure to the definitions of culture, its impact on society, and the way(s) in which subcultures shape worldviews and notions of right and wrong. The course will introduce concepts such as resistance, transgression, and seduction as both predictors and explanations of crime within the overarching context of the power relationships experienced by the various cultures co-existing within our society.
