Course TitlePSYCHOLOGY OF CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR
DescriptionThis course concerns the psychological roots of criminal behavior. The course begins with defining what is a crime and then gives a brief review of the criminal justice system, both juvenile and adult, and then moves on to the roots of these behaviors. It also explores how much of criminal behavior can be attributed to biology, the psychology/ temperament of the person, the society in which the person resides, as well as environmental issues such as over-crowding, pollution, and noise. The course will also take a developmental look at crime that begins in childhood, continues through adolescence and finally moves into adulthood. We will also discuss different types of crime and how these relate to the offenders and the course will end with a discussion about punishment and imprisonment. Lecture: 3 Credit hours. Prerequisite: PS 101.
