In today’s society, crime and deviant behavior are often one of the top concerns of              society members. From the nightly news to personal experiences with victimization,          crime seems to be all around us. In this course, we will explore the field of criminology or  the study of crime. In doing so, we will look at possible explanations for crime from             psychological, biological, and sociological standpoints, explore the various types of          crime and their consequences for society, and investigate how crime and criminals are     handled by the criminal justice system. Why do some individuals commit crimes but         others don’t? What aspects in our culture and society promote crime and deviance? Why do individuals receive different punishments for the same crime? What factors shape the criminal case process, from arrest to punishments?
