Course Details

Learners will distinguish between psychological, biological, and psychosocial explanations of crime and deviance. The course will then apply these theories to specific crimes against persons, such as homicide, assault, and sexual offenses. The burgeoning field of correctional psychology will also be discussed. This course will also involve a detailed study of psychological approaches to explaining recidivist criminal Behaviour. Theoretical and empirical approaches will be utilized to explain the behaviour of offenders involved in property crimes and/or violent crimes. (Formerly BLES302)
