AOJ-381 Victimology and Criminal Behavior

Victimology and Criminal Behavior focuses on the criminal event from both the perspective of victims and the motives of offenders. It examines victimization patterns, typologies, lifestyles, causal factors, consequences, and the treatment of victims by the criminal justice system. Understanding the behaviors of criminals will help students identify preincident warning signs, techniques to defuse immediate danger, and strategies to prevent future harm.

Advisory: This is an upper-level course. Students should have knowledge equivalent to an introductory Administration of Justice course.
