CJS-140 - Criminology

Criminology looks at why certain people commit crimes and how criminal acts originate and develop. It studies research on the complex relationship between individuals and cultural norms that leads to criminal conduct. Students also discuss society's response to crime through imprisonment and other sanctions, and the effectiveness of such sanctions. PSY 151 or SOC 151 are recommended but not required.
