Course Aims

This course explores some major issues in contemporary criminological theories. Criminologists in the 21st century are provided with a rich legacy of research and theoretical development. The course aims to build on the theoretical understanding that students have gained in introductory-level courses. To develop a deeper understanding of the discipline of criminology, we will examine selected concepts and issues that have emerged (or remain) as important ideas or debates in criminology. Although brief reviews will be provided, the course assumes knowledge of basic concepts in criminology.
