課程概述

How do people become "criminals?" What social forces and structural conditions shape the formation of criminality? Why are some actions deemed more deserving of punishment and social control than others? In this short-term course, we will examine the sociological distinctions between crime and deviance as well as the causes and consequences of social control. We will explore what we currently know about crime in terms of the social distribution of offenders, victims, and incidents and how explanations in criminology have tried to make sense of these data. In addition, it is a goal to clarify issues relating to crime and criminality and promote the application of course materials and critical thinking towards social issues in general.
