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. Other topics include violent crimes against individuals and groups, crimes against property, white-collar and corporate crime, and public order crimes. The course concludes with a review of comparative criminology and its application to international crime control.
This is a fully functional demonstration of one topic from the complete McGraw-Hill course. Full courses tend to be fourteen topics plus a review week, and have alternative content available for customization purposes. Once the course is placed within your Learning Management System, the instructor can turn features off and on via the functionality of the LMS. McGraw-Hill also provides solutions for hosting courses if your institution does not support a Learning Management System. The following are just some of the key facets of our development methodology:
Each course begins and ends with input from subject matter experts teaching in the field.
They are based on a foundation that includes Bloom's Taxonomy of Education Objectives.
We build in engaging interactivity to reach learners with different learning styles and multiple intelligences.
Each course is SCORM-compliant and works with all major Learning Management Systems.
