COUN 8136 - Criminal Behavior♦


(5 cr.)
This course provides students with contemporary views, theories, and case study analysis of maladaptive and criminal behavior, victimology and victim-offender relationships. A broad conceptualization of criminal behavior, such as that woven from biological, sociological and psychological perspectives is explored and evaluated. Theories of crime and the application of risk factors associated with criminal behavior are examined. Additionally, students will be exposed to specific offender groups, both violent and non-violent, including psychopaths, serial and mass murderers, criminal paraphiliacs, arsonists, white-collar thieves, scam artists, domestic terrorists, and others.
♦ Students may take this as a non-degree course, which means they do not have to be enrolled in a program. Contact an enrollment specialist [1-866-492-5336 (U.S.);1-443-627-7222 (toll)] for more information.
