This course provides an overview of criminology, including its scope and the history of criminological thought. Topics discussed include the elements of crime and how it is measured, characteristics of crime and criminals, and the psychology and biology of crime. Students examine theories that offer social structure, subcultural, social control, social conflict, and environmental explanations of crime and criminal behavior.

The course concludes with a review of comparative criminology and its application to international crime control.
