Criminology & Social Deviance

Search icon

Criminology and Social Deviance explores the social and psychological influences on criminal behavior. Current theories that attempt to explain the causes of illegal behavior will be examined, including violent crime, media (video game, TV) influence, gangs, and group deviance, white-collar crime, and ‘victimless’ crime. Attention will be given to understanding criminal behavior as multifactorial within the context of a biblical worldview.
