INEQUALITIES & CRIME - Lewis - Spring 2022

SOCI 202 -- Inequalities & Crime (3) Crime in any society reflects the power relationships between different social groups. This course provides an introductory examination of crime in the Unites States via an overview of current theory, research, and trends within the context of specific inequalities faced by groups. We will examine how inequalities shape the experience of individuals and groups with the criminal justice system as both offenders and victims of crime. We will engage in many of these topics with a context of current events.
