Criminal Justice-COLL | Gender and Crime
P300 | 30034 | H. Levesque


The goal of this course is to examine how social scientific theory
and research concerning gender informs our understanding of
gender and crime.  We will explore myths and realities of
gender differences and how those impact criminal behavior and
victimization as well as the workings of the criminal justice
system.  Because it has too often been overlooked, the experience of
women in the criminal justice system will be particularly emphasized
in this course.

Throughout this course, we will focus on the development of
important skills and capacities.  These skills include identifying
and evaluating arguments, comparing and applying theoretical
approaches, analytical thinking, and developing and supporting
arguments using social science research.
